Favorite quote:

Favorite thing about Project GRAD Akron:

My favorite thing about Project GRAD is engaging with so many different students, making those positive connections, and watching their growth through high school and beyond.

A little about Tiara:

I was born and raised on Glendora Avenue on the West side of Akron, Ohio. I enjoy working and living in my community. My background experience involves years of working in the mental health field as a case manager in several school districts. I have a passion for working with the youth. I enjoy learning from them as well as guiding them on their own paths. My hobbies include tinkering with computers, gaming, taking care of my physical and mental health, spending time with family, and cooking.
