BIO

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, Griggs' 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 at Dark and Lovely's Ultimate Fashionista Model Search in Atlanta, GA. Winning the multi-state modeling competition and being featured in Essence Magazine gave Tiana the drive she needed to pursue a career in beauty and entertainment. With high hopes for future endeavors and faith as her foundation, Griggs continues to pursue a career in modeling and acting. Tiana plans to use her platform to promote female empowerment and encourage others to live with purpose.
