KaTerra looks into the camera with her head in her hands, wearing a long sleeve white shirt

KaTerra Moore

Civic Engagement Fellow

KaTerra recently graduated from Rochester Community and Technical College with a certificate in Advanced Hospital Nursing Assistant. She will be transferring to the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree. She is still undecided about what she wants to study, but happy and blessed to have the opportunity to pursue and explore her interests to find out what she wants to do. During her time at RCTC, she was able to serve as a senator for a semester and get firsthand experience of working with leaders around the college.

While she was at RCTC, one of the advisors that KaTerra worked closely with as a senator let her know about the opportunities LeadMN was offering. She felt that it could be an extension of her quest to find out more about her interests as far as being a leader in her community, but also just a cool job to do something she's never done. She is excited just to be here and able to make a difference or assist others in making a change. She is also hoping to work closely with black student unions across the different schools.

KaTerra enjoys spending time with her family, hiking (when weather permits), and photography. One of her favorite things to do of all time is listen to music, and there are very few moments you will see her without her earbuds.
