Kiera Foley is a senior at Eastlake High School hoping to pursue a degree in Spanish and Economics. Growing up biracial, she has always embraced multiculturalism, whether it be exploring her own Japanese-Irish heritage or unfamiliar cultures. Her interest in international affairs was further sparked by her love for the Spanish language, in which she holds a state seal of biliteracy. She is passionate about youth engagement with the local and global community.
Kiera has been involved with non-profit, leadership, and peer engagement work throughout high school. She has worked with Seattle-based organizations such as Centro Cultural Mexicano and Casa Latina, as well as Teens in Public Service, where she completed a 160-hour summer internship at a non-profit as a part of their 2022 cohort. At school, she serves as a DECA state officer and president of both the National English Honor Society and Asian Cultural Club, leading peers in learning about business, culture, humanities, and their intersection. Kiera’s work is fueled by her determination to not only leave her own impact but to empower others through education and engagement. In her free time, she can be found swimming, developing recipes, and trying boba cafés across the Greater Seattle area.
