Tiana Griggs is a 26 year old lover of Christ, who currently resides in Atlanta, GA.

Born and raised in Monticello, GA, Tiana has always had dreams of leaving her small-town and experiencing God's true purpose for her life.

At the age of 15, Tiana's family moved to Decatur, Ga; where she attended Southwest Dekalb High School and cheered as a varsity football cheerleader. With the encouraging support of her family and mentors, Tiana graduated with Hope Scholarship and attended Georgia Southern University, where she studied Community Health.

In 2010, Tiana began her modeling career after being discovered as the 1st winner of Dark and Lovely's Ultimate Fashionista Model Search in Atlanta, GA. Winning the multi-state modeling competition gave her the drive she needed to pursue a career in beauty and entertainment. With national exposure on billboards, magazines, and television; Tiana saw this opportunity as a way to encourage young girls from her hometown. Determined to "live on purpose", Tiana went on to become the face of Proctor and Gambles' "My Black is Beautiful" campaign, a women's empowerment movement that celebrates the diverse collective beauty of African American women and encourages women to define and promote their own beauty standards.

In November 2012, Tiana competed in her first pageant and placed 2RU to Brittany Sharp, Miss Georgia USA 2013. With Phillippians 4:13 at heart, Tiana returned in November 2013, to earn the crown as Miss Georgia USA 2014.

Tiana currently manages her state title, modeling career, and passion for outreach and community service; all while traveling the globe as a Delta Airline Flight Attendant. She's overjoyed with excitement and thankful for the opportunity to live out her dreams! Tiana is prayerful of great things to come in 2014 and begins her reign with an understanding of the promises of 1Corinthians 2:9.
