Celebrating Women's History Month: Meet Sierra Sees!

Bowling Green, KY (March 25, 2024) - Sierra Sees was born and bred by southern hospitality in Allen, Texas. She graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in criminology, minoring in political science. She thought she would end up in law school after her studies, but after spending a semester as an Archer Fellow in Washington, D.C., her love for policy, advocacy, and community engagement took her in a different direction, and she has not looked back since.

She now serves as a Policy and Engagement Manager at Connected Nation (CN), where she is proud to work with the smartest and kindest people in the industry. She values her coworkers’ patience and personalities and enjoys their jokes amidst the hard work they do. Her favorite things about working for CN are the opportunities to travel and constantly learn each day!

The national nonprofit’s mission was really brought to life for Sierra during the COVID-19 pandemic, when she watched internet access and digital skills become necessities for our nation. This emphasized to her that “everyone belongs in a connected society.”

Women’s History Month brings up nostalgia for the encouragement her mother and grandma gave her. Sierra says that she would not be who she is today without their wise counsel and the positive impact they have had throughout her life.

 “This month, I honor the women who have shaped my character. I celebrate the many achievements of women across the world and look forward to all that women will accomplish in the years to come,” says Sierra.

Sierra has been further influenced by the words of Helen Keller, who said, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” This piece of wisdom has shown Sierra that dedicated, hard-working women who respect and support one another can achieve anything, with only the sky as the limit.
