Upon completion of her high school education, she opted to further her studies at the University of South California (USC). In college, she continued playing basketball to the point of her becoming the women’s team manager.

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.
