Kierra 's Story

Kierra Curtis envisions Baltimore City as an empowered community with families that covet transparency and open communication. She hopes to bridge familial communication gaps by creating safe spaces for the hard, intimate conversations families often avoid, especially around healthy sexuality.

Baltimore Collegetown LeaderShape provided Kierra the tools, network, and confidence to become a change agent in her hometown. She used that confidence and energy garnered from Collegetown LeaderShape at her internship at Ohio State University’s College of Public Health and can now apply new knowledge to her vision for Baltimore.
