Hi there, my name is Kiara Rose Wade and I am 24 years old. I was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia but I am biracial of both African American and Australian background. I am a married woman who has recently just graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Sociology. I am a featured contributor for She Owns It which is among the top 50 Female Entrepreneur websites in the world!

img_0144-1At the age of 18 I moved out of home to pursue my student athlete career in the United States as a college undergraduate. In that time I moved to three different states and managed to complete my degree at Norfolk State University. While I managed to complete my studies I also continued my love for basketball by playing NCAA Division 1 basketball wearing #34 for Norfolk State University Spartans.

Ever since I was a little girl I have had this obsession with fashion and travel. Although most of my friends encouraged me to complete my degree in Fashion, I took a little different path. It’s not often that a girl my age completes a degree that she has no idea what to use it for! So one day I told myself let’s start working on some mini projects. One which included the development of Miss Rose Boutique a project that is still in the making. I knew that if I put my mind to all the things I wanted to achieve in life that I would be able to make it possible and here I am today sharing it with you all!

After my time as a student athlete I wanted to broaden my skills and take on a number of different modeling gigs. Whether that was sport, fashion, commercial or runway my heart was determined to make it. While it is still very much apart of my life and I am blessed to be able to work in that field, there is more to life that I am yet to uncover. My story is going to be left untold because my blog is designed to tell it for me and to inspire young adults like me on how to be successful! Love you all.

Miss Rose 🌹
