Hilltop Views

Sierra Rozen

Hi! My name is Sierra Rozen and I'm the Life and Arts editor. I'm a senior Communication major, with double minors in Journalism and Women's Studies. This is my last semester working for Hilltop Views, as I will be graduating in December! I previously interned at Austin Woman Magazine and served as the president for It's On Us. I enjoy reporting on social justice issues and all things culture while advocating for basic human rights. In my free time, I love downing tea, exploring downtown Austin, and contemplating what life is all about.
