From growing up in Alabama, Erica Webb developed her passion for public service to improve gender equity in rural areas worldwide. Erica is a rising senior at the University of Alabama at Birmingham where she studies English and Political Science pre-law. She serves as a student government representative, resident assistant, and president of Generation Action at UAB, a campus chapter of Planned Parenthood. She utilizes these positions to promote human rights and political activism. She also volunteers as an advocate for sexual assault survivors at the local Crisis Center, student advisory council member with the American Association of University Women of Alabama, and community organizer with the ACLU of Alabama. After becoming a 2018 Truman Scholar Finalist and attending the most recent United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, Erica is further inspired to become an international human rights lawyer and develop policies that benefit women in rural areas.
