Alliyah joined ZUMIX at age 11 in 2014, through a dance program called Con La Corriente. She returned in 2020, when she became a member of the ZUMIX Teen Council and participant turned co-facilitator of Z Black Box. Later on, she found joy in radio programming as a Live On Air! Participant and served as the summer 2022 ZUMIX Radio Intern.
Alliyah credits her time in ZUMIX’s programs for expanding her creative skill set and leadership qualities. She believes that the arts are a powerful tool, especially when used to ask meaningful questions and give platforms to underrepresented people and their stories. Alliyah is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree and hopes to combine her passion for the arts and mental health in the future.
