Sul Ciang is a RISE AmeriCorps Member serving with Community Youth Concepts (CYC) in Des Moines.
Born and raised in Burma, Sul traveled to Malaysia at age 6 before eventually moving to Iowa. She’s now multilingual with English, Chin, Burmese, and Falam skills.
Sul is pursuing an associate’s degree in accounting at DMACC. After her AmeriCorps term, she’s looking to transfer universities for a bachelor’s degree.
Sul joined the RISE AmeriCorps Program to experience helping the community, including the students with CYC. Through RISE, she hopes to learn more about how organizations operate and to become more confident with skills like public speaking and sharing ideas.
“The impact I want to make during my service is to help people as much as possible and help students enjoy our program.”
In her free time, Sul plays tennis and volleyball. She also enjoys listening to music and hanging out with friends.
