Sierra Browning, President 
Hey hey! I am a Junior Health and Exercise Science major with a minor in religion and maybe something else---who knows.  I am a "townie," living in Winston-Salem my whole life, graduating from West Forsyth High School and cheering for the Demon Deacons since I was in the womb.  (I'm a second-generation Deac and BSUer.)  I have also attended Ardmore Baptist Church, learning, growing, making friends, preaching, and doing missions with such a wonderful body of believers.  Along with being involved in BSU, I am a student athletic trainer for the football team and am a member of the Anthony Aston Players, the theatre club on campus.  I enjoy reading, playing basketball, and cheering on the US Women's National Team.  I am also a HUGE Harry Potter fan, reading the entire series over 20 times.  This past year in BSU, I have engaged in fruitful religious discourse, spent way too much time in the lounge, and made some of my best friends.  I am excited to see where God leads the BSU and myself in this upcoming year!

Go Deacs!

Mary Brown, Secretary/Treasurer

Hey everyone! I'm Mary. I am a sophomore from the small town of 
Cleveland, NC. I plan on majoring in Business and Enterprise Management with a minor in English (although, these plans may change). Alongside BSU, I work part-time at the Copy Center in the Benson University Center. In my free time, I love to read (some of my favorite authors include Rick Riordan, Fredrik Backman, and Barbara Kingsolver), listen to music, watch crime TV shows, and play with Theo, my little Yorkie. During my time in the BSU, I have found a group of wonderful people where I can relax and explore my faith and I am ready to see what this year brings! 

Quinton Loy, Outreach and Covenant Family Coordinator

Hi everyone, my name is Quinton and I'm from Mebane, NC. I am a current junior majoring in Biochemistry and Psychology. Luckily for me my favorite animal is squirrels which we have plenty of them roaming around campus. During my free time I love to powerlift at the gym. I'm still trying to become a Dorito like Captain America. The best part about BSU is coming together for fellowship over a meal together. If you ever want to catch a meal together outside of BSU, you can always find me in the Mag room.                                                           
I am Quinton

Abigail Cole, Missions Coordinator

Hi, I'm Abigail. I am a sophomore from Rockwell NC. I am a biology major, minoring in neuroscience. I'm trying my best to pursue a career in the medical field, we'll see how that goes. But in the mean time, I love to listen to true crime podcasts, and watch criminal minds. I love BSU, it is honestly my favorite thing about Wake, and I hope to make it a home to many other people. 

Olivia Blake, Special Ministries

Howdie everyone! I'm Olivia. I am a sophomore from Kernersville, NC (GO EAST, sorry Sierra), but I proudly call myself a "townie". Here at Wake, I am a majoring in Spanish, with a concentration in medical Spanish, and a minor in bioethics. Along with BSU, I am a member of Alpha Phi Omega (APO), Wake Saturdays, and Campus Gardens/the Cultivation Leadership Team. In my free time, you can find me drinking TOO much iced coffee, listening to music/dramatically lip syncing to my "fans", and trying to convince my friends to go off campus and explore Winston with me (because after 19+ years of living here, there is still so much I haven't seen).  During the past year at BSU, not only have I grown in my faith and understanding, but I have found a family. I am BEYOND grateful for the role BSU has played in my time here at Wake Forest and I cannot wait to see what the next year brings! 
(p.s. if you were wondering, yes, I did paint the cute smiley face beside me!)

Aleia Rose, Fellowship Coordinator

Hi everyone, I'm Aleia!! I am a sophomore from Morganton, NC. I plan on majoring in Health and Exercise Science, and I am not sure what I plan on minoring in. I played volleyball and track in high school. Some things I enjoy are watching criminal minds on Netflix, being outdoors, and hanging out with friends in family. I am also a member of Alpha Phi Omega, a service fraternity. I am very grateful for the family I have found in BSU!!

Kara Kump, Worship Coordinator

Hello everybody! My name is Kara Kump and I am so excited to be a part of BSU for my second year. I am a sophomore from Hickory, NC (about an hour and a half heading west on I-40) and I am considering majoring in Psychology with a minor in something (should probs figure that out soon). In addition to BSU, I am the treasurer of Woof Forest, a Magnolia and Poteat scholar, and a Student Adviser. I love to read - though Wake doesn't offer much free time for it - and I am EXTREMELY passionate about dogs. If it weren't for BSU, I am not sure how I would have made it through my first year at Wake. I was immediately welcomed as someone who belonged, something that a lot of students crave for themselves. I am so thankful that I get to be a part of shaping this organization and helping students like me find a place of support, friendship, and faith.

Megan Gerber, Pastoral Care Coordinator

Well I was born in a small town

We don’t write bios in a small town

Probably leave  a small town

Oh, those web communities

All my friends are so small town

My parents live in the same small town

My job is so pastoral care at Wake 

Educated at Wake Forest

Taught the fear of Jesus in a small town

Still fear web bios in a small town

Hello! My name is Megan Gerber.


Keira Perry, PR Coordinator

Hey, everybody. My name is Keira. I am a sophomore here at Wake this year. I am from Greencastle, PA which is a small town on the PA/MD border. I plan on majoring in biology, minoring in neuroscience, and possibly trying to incorporate law into my science-centered academic path. Outside of BSU, I am an RA in Bostwick Residence Hall and a member of Alpha Phi Omega (APO), a service fraternity on campus. During my free time, you can catch me listening to music across all genres, especially 70s jams, binging crime shows and documentaries, watching Bon Appetit videos on YouTube while sipping coffee, or quoting TikToks. I am very excited to be part of BSU leadership this year and look forward to developing my relationship with God while being surrounded by amazing people. I strive to create a welcome and accepting environment within BSU, and I'm always looking for new pals, so please feel free to contact me.

Alyssa  Soltren, New Student Representative

The New Student Representative is chosen by the BSU in the Fall to represent new students, both freshmen and transfer students.

Default bio for council members who don't write a bio:

The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy. My mother was a fifteen year old French llama seller named Chloe who had  webbed feet. My father would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons with Ludite ex-patriots who taught me to disdain writing my own bio for websites.  In the spring we'd make meat helmets, which has served me well in my complete domination of Kaitlin Mundy in every sport we've ever played. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really.
