Adeeva Myers is a sophomore with an intended major of Social Welfare at UC Berkeley. Reigning from the charming city of Carson, California, she is excited to serve as one of the two Volunteer Coordinators for this year’s African Black Coalition Conference. Adeeva can be described as a humble and kind-hearted person who holds herself to high moral standards. As she continues to grow as a socially conscience 19 year old African American woman, she is beginning to learn the ways of the world and her place in it.
In addition to striving to achieve academic excellence, she believes that service to the community is equally as important. She is an active participant in many organizations on Berkeley’s campus including Black Campus Ministries Choir, the Haas Undergraduate Black Business Association, the National Council of Negro Women, and Berkeley Scholars to Cal, which mentors young minority students. Above all else, Adeeva is a firm believer in Christ and everything she stands on is built on that foundation.
