Ciera was born and raised in the United States. She moved to Okinawa a year ago; this is her first time living abroad. She attends a university in the United States and plans to finish her bachelor’s degree in Law. Before joining TELL, she worked for a non-profit organization that helped low-income populations receive assistance for employment and educational training services. When she is not working, she enjoys going to the beach, traveling, and exploring the beautiful island of Okinawa.
