Tiara serves as the President and founder of the Houselessness Service Org at UCSD, providing mutual aid to the unhoused in San Diego, while playing as an NCAA Division 1 tennis player for the Tritons. Tiara is interested in advocating for the most vulnerable members of her community in a manner that is human-centered.
