TRUE STAR ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT

Tayler Ulmer

Graduate Spelman College, Bachelors Anthropology, Sociology, and International Studies – Masters Anthropology of Development, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) Marshall Scholar

What are you doing now?

I work as the Chief of Staff for More Than Me. More Than Me is a school network in Liberia, West Africa. It’s a pretty cool job. I am based between Washington DC and Liberia and I travel everywhere in between. 

What is your fondest True Star memory?

The first time that I hosted True Star Radio was one of the most nerve racking and exhilarating moments that I’d ever been in. It was truly an amazing experience to be on one of the top radio stations in the city and to share that experience with my family and friends. 

How has True Star impacted your life?

True Star has provided me the guidance and the grit to question the norms and create my own reality. Two black women from the South Side of Chicago running a non-profit – and still is – in many ways unheard of. Yet, you did it. You showed me that anything was possible.
