Uma Srivastava is more than a resident of Birmingham; she is truly one of those individuals who made it HOME. She embraced Birmingham 11 years ago when she moved from her home state of Mississippi to attend UAB. Since then, Uma has been driven to make positive strides for Birmingham through various organizations such as Rotaract, KultureCity, Railroad Park Junior Board, India Fest, FBI Citizens Alumni Academy (CAAA), Past President of UAB School of Health Professions Junior Board, among others.
Uma’s driving passion is serving as the volunteer COO of KultureCity, an international nonprofit based out of Birmingham, AL, whose mission is to create acceptance and inclusion for all individuals with unique abilities. When she joined as a volunteer four years ago, KultureCity had seven local certified inclusive venues. Once Uma began leading the initiative, she streamlined the process; now KultureCity has over 350 certified venues in four countries.
