Upon completion of her high school education, she opted to further her studies at the University of South California (USC).

The year 2009 can be categorized as being a very important one in the life of Kiara as it was that year she met DeMar DeRozan (born on August 7, 1989) who at that time was also a student at the University of Southern California, as well as a player for the USC Trojans.
