Sierra Porter is an aspiring journalist from Atlanta. Growing up Sierra always knew that she wanted to become a writer. As a little girl, she would walk around with a pen and pad in her hand writing down her feelings. Throughout her adolescence, she always kept a journal. Sierra is now a senior at Georgia State University studying journalism. So far Sierra has interned for Streetz 94.5, Old School 87.7, and 'True Urban Culture Magazine.' She is currently an intern for Usher's New Look, and the student editor of the Atlanta Association of Black Journalists' newsletter called the Byline. Sierra was a news journalist for Georgia State's 'The Signal' and is now the public relations director for EmpowHer at Georgia State. Sierra's career goals include writing for a famous magazine such as 'Ebony' or 'Vibe.' She has also thought about starting her own magazine similar to 'Yo! Magazine.' Sierra would love to reopen the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts. For the center, she would provide programs to children and teenagers dedicated to acting, reading, writing, poetry, and dance. Another one of her goals is to host or create a hip-hop documentary and write two books. One book, 'Live To Tell,' will be about her life and the other will be about mental illness in the black community. Sierra wants to change the world with her words and truth. "I still believe that if your aim is to change the world, journalism is a more immediate short-term weapon"- Tom Stoppard. Sierra will graduate from Georgia State in May 2018.
