She is guided by the principles of social justice, equity, and inclusivity with particular interest in increasing representation and advocacy for marginalized communities, especially the Black community.

She is striving to broaden her impact through building her platform and experience in order to produce continuous change for the Black community and other marginalized groups at FIU and beyond.
After graduating from FIU, Zyannah will be attending law school with aspirations of becoming a civil litigation and criminal defense lawyer with expertise in civil rights. In addition, she plans to be a social entrepreneur that aims to promote diversity and inclusivity while giving back to underrepresented, often overlooked communities.
