Ciara Rodriguez was born and raised in Leominster Massachusetts before deciding to brave  the harsh winters of Ithaca, New York to attend Cornell University. She studied Sociology with minors in Inequality Studies and East Asian Studies. As a first generation college student she made the most of her college experience by joining a plethora of clubs such as ballroom dancing but by also becoming heavily involved with the multicultural community on campus. Her experiences working with diverse students inspired her to pursue a job in higher education working in the Multicultural and First Generation Student Support. Ciara is extremely excited to better get to the know the Worcester area and be a resource for Clark students. When not in the office she is usually buried in a book or eating a second helping of dessert.
