Meet Tierra Winstead

Q & A

What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given and why?

“If you don’t ask, the answer will always be no.” Frankly, you shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help because no one can do everything on their own.

What does innovation mean to you?

Innovation means opportunity and growth.

What was your favorite toy as a kid?

My doll head! I probably colored her hair with markers more than 100 times. After about five years of playing with her, she was bald. Ha!

What is the nerdiest thing you do 

in your free time?

Rewrite my notes and reorganize anything I can get my hands on if I am bored.


Where is your favorite place on 

campus and why?


My favorite place on campus is my own room. Any time spent on and around campus is spent working or stressing. My room is my relaxation hub.
