About Yourself: 

Hello friends! My name is Sierra Berg and I am a third year student from the East Bay. I am incrediby passionate about education and educational policy, on both the college level and the K-12 level. I am still figuring out where I'll go after my undergraduate, but I definetly know that I want to be working with students and advocating for equitable education. On campus, I am also a campus tour guide and mentor, as well as a writing tutor.

  • Giraffes are my favorite animal in the whole world, and it's not just because I'm tall
  • My favorite author is Maya Angelou
  • I have always dreamed of being a florist
