Featured on NPR as an expert in Equitable Mindfulness - Tiara has been granted scholarships, grants, and awards for her work with mindfulness and equity/social justice, mindfulness in the student-athlete population, and creating performance art with a foundation of mindful practice. She has been invited nationally and internationally to present on her research involving mindfulness and overlooked populations.
