My Purpose. Who I Am.
My name is Kierra Collier and to most people I’m just your average college student. However, I am more than just that and it took me a while to figure out my purpose and who I was. Throughout college I took several classes that continuously asked what my identity and self purpose was. Every time someone asked, I struggled tremendously to come up with a definite answer. As a result, I decided to actually sit down and figure out who I was.
Once I figured out who I was, I found more and more things that I enjoy. Some of those things happen to be basketball, fitness, health, design, and many other things. I want to help others on their path to a healthier lifestyle. Mentally, physically, and emotionally. In sharing some of my personal thoughts and encounters (the good, the bad, and everything in-between), I’m hopeful to help others find things they enjoy. Every life experience you encounter makes you who you are. My purpose of this website is to be my true authentic self and share who I am and what I love in hopes to encourage others to do the same.
Along with enjoying some of my hobbies, I am also a member of the Drake Women’s Basketball team. If you’re interested in coming to a Women’s Basketball game you can view our schedule on the Drake Athletics website. One thing I love about being a member of an athletic team is the connections I get to build. Not to mention all the opportunities that are presented to me. I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to grow as a person. I’m also fortunate to have a platform that allows me to speak up about things I find important. But I want to do more. Through my platform I want to influence people. As well as, use my voice for those who do not have the same platform that I have.
