Deidra Rogers
Community Outreach / JD Candidate

Deidra Rogers is a Miami, Florida native who has always had a passion for serving the community. At a young age she discovered her gift of gab and wanted to find a way to apply it to her future, which sparked her desire to become an attorney. Deidra is a graduate of the University of South Florida. While attending USF, she served as Solicitor General with the Student Government Association and became a member of the National Council of Negro Women, a public service organization aimed at leading, advocating for, and empowering women of African descent, their families and communities . In Fall 2015, she was initiated into the Kappa Iota Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and was elected as President for the Chapter. Deidra spent her time in Tampa seeking roles that best aligned with her career goals. She has interned with Tampa City Councilman Frank Reddick and completed a Legislative Internship Program at USF. She also served as a Field Organizer with NextGen America, turning out the youth vote in the Tampa Bay community. In these roles, she realized that her next steps would be to move back home to Miami, apply to law school and search for roles within her Local Government where she feels that she can inspire change. Most recently, Deidra has served as the Community Outreach Coordinator with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation within the advocacy department. Deidra is currently pursuing her Juris Doctorate degree and will be attending law school in Fall 2021.
