Cierra Robson

Class of 2019

Cierra Robson, hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, is a member of the class of 2019. She is pursuing the Race and Public Policy track within the African American Studies department, as well as a certificate in the Technology and Society Program. She is most interested in the ways in which advances in science and technology can mold global conceptions and depictions of race and race relations. Cierra was originally drawn to the department after her work in Boston’s Museum of African American History as a senior in high school, and solidified her decision to join the department after studying mass incarceration at the Harvard Kennedy School in the summer of 2016. In the summer of 2017, Cierra completed an internship with the Intellectual Property Operations Team at Facebook, studying international intellectual property law. Outside of her course of study, Cierra is a member of the Undergraduate Board of Advisors for the African American Studies Department, an appointed member of the Undergraduate Student Government’s Diversity and Equity Committee, a Project Leader for the Community House After School Program (CHASA), and the Co-Editor in Chief of an online and print publication called The Stripes. After she completes her undergraduate course of study, Cierra hopes to continue her studies in a graduate school program, and eventually work to create global socially sustainable businesses.
