impact

It is said that we can only create what can first imagine. Roundhouse News and Review attempts to connect and inspire the Sierra College community through story.

Roundhouse gives home to the voices, ideas and experiences of the Sierra community. We foreground equity and inclusion to facilitate intercultural communication.  

my contribution

As Community Engagement Director, I I acted as the liaison between the founding team and the larger community by relaying key decisions, dates and deadlines through graphic design; attending local events; and collaborating with Roundhouse's co-faculty advisers to develop the next student editorial team. I invited student organizations to claim their space on the site and create content.
