Tiana is a junior at Georgetown University, studying government with a double minor in psychology and education, justice, and inquiry studies. She is originally from Augusta, Georgia, but she graduated high school in Stafford, Virginia, #10 out of over 400 students in her graduating class. She is a first generation student, a proud member of the Community Scholars Program and the Georgetown Scholarship Program. She was awarded the Patrick Healy Scholarship for the 2019-2020 school year. She is a member of the Hoya Blue Diamonds, a community service based dance team on campus.

Outside of school, she enjoys trading/investing in the foreign exchange market, where she is also an independent business owner. She is also a fellow, volunteering for a school board political campaign for Luisa Santos, who graduated from Georgetown University. Something about me that I value is that I am Christian, and I give God credit for where I am today.

Work Experience: Now in my third year at CollegeVine, I have helped dozens of students gain acceptance to their top-choice schools and have also advised and mentored hundreds more through my livestreams. I am also a professional conductor and a multi-instrumentalist, and I currently serve as the music director of the Apollo Ensemble of Boston and as Opera Saratoga's assistant conductor. I have led symphonic concerts and operatic productions throughout the United States, and I'm looking forward to making my international conducting debut in Vienna this fall.
My Admissions Story: Initially interested in pursuing a career as a performing cellist, I applied almost exclusively to music schools with dual and double degree options and ultimately enrolled in the Tufts University/New England Conservatory Dual Degree Program. Unhappy with the combined program and worried I'd never feel like I was fully a student at either school, I logged back into CommonApp.org in October of my freshman year. I can't say I went about the transfer process in the smartest way (I only applied to two schools!), but Harvard miraculously accepted me (or 'excepted me' as I wrote in a celebratory Facebook post that day - no one ever let me live that one down), and the rest was history.
