Proud of her “Motor City” roots of toughness and grit, Kiara Roumayah is a debater, a coach, a Spanish tutor, and a varsity athlete. Debate has cultivated Kiara’s passion for learning and opened her mind to a breadth of information and perspectives. It has also been a safe haven that has cultivated a broad intellectual curiosity. Power lies in action for Kiara and she will take this philosophy with her as she seeks to promote social justice and equity in her community. She’ll succeed, no doubt, says Kiara’s nominator, who believes that Kiara will be a leader in any capacity she chooses for herself.
