The Miss USA pageant involved an intense two weeks of photo shoots, community appearances, and charity work with Best Buddies and USO. The pageant culminated with the crowning ceremony in which Miss Oklahoma captured the 2015 title.
Competing in Miss USA was a dream come true for Kiara.
"My Miss USA experience was everything I could have ever imagined. I truly had the time of my life," she said. "I walked away with so many priceless memories and friendships that I will always remember. I'm so blessed and thankful that I've had this opportunity to represent the state of Tennessee in this capacity."
As she closes this chapter, Kiara is looking forward to another season with the Titans Cheerleaders and pursuing her goal to become a pediatrician. Having graduated in May 2014 with a Master's Degree in Public Health, Kiara plans to start medical school next fall.
