WHY Kiara is pursuing a degree in Social Work

That’s the advice UNC Greensboro social work major Kiara Hickman gives to incoming freshmen. As a first-generation student, navigating college was intimidating at first. But she credits the wide array of campus organizations for helping her find her place at UNCG. Now, she helps others do the same as an RA and as president of 1st G – a campus group for other first-gen students.

What’s next for the School of Health and Human Sciences student? Kiara plans to follow in her grandmother’s footsteps and become a school social worker to advocate for people who may not have the resources to advocate for themselves.
