Tiana joined the Fund in May 2017. She works directly with the Director of Development to ensure scholar needs are met by materializing ideas. Her passion for advocacy and empowerment cultivated during her time at the University of St. Thomas, where she earned a Bachelor’s of Arts in Sociology in 2016. Upon graduation, she successfully launched Ascension, LLC, a cultural brokerage aimed at “elevating dreams across cultures”. Tiana intends to infuse her knowledge of systematic oppression with passions for literature and youth empowerment to ensure scholars are able to elevate their dreams.
