A California native, Kiana was born in Brooklyn and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. She recently graduated from the University of California Los Angeles with a major in Geography and a minor in Asian Languages, and was involved extensively in sustainability initiatives at her school. Among them, Kiana was a Team Leader for the Sustainability Action Research Program's Air Quality Team, where she and her team assessed the health impacts of air quality at her university's recreational facilities. She has also been part of an organization which aims to provide culturally competent and affordable health screenings to the Chinese-speaking communities in Los Angeles through free health fairs. Kiana is passionate about cooking, sustainability, and health, and is excited to apply her experiences in community advocacy and education while working as market manager for GrowNYC!
