A crown for her public service

School of Public Service graduate Tiffany Shivers (2015) has been named Miss Black California US Ambassador.

The Miss Black US Ambassador and Miss Black Teen US Ambassador scholarship pageants encourage, empower and enlighten girls and young women in their respective communities and state, organizers say.

“The organization has a strong emphasis on being a change agent in our communities, which I believe is something that DePaul University and the School of Public Service has instilled in me,” Shivers says. “I am extremely excited and honored to hold the title of Miss Black California US Ambassador and to use this platform to advocate for mental health, which is an issue that is often overlooked in
minority communities.”

Shivers is founder of Crown of Courage, a nonprofit organization that empowers
young girls and women of color to create their own narrative when it comes to their emotional health.
