Sunday Speaker: Kiana Maria Sears - Creating a Legacy by Living Legendary


This Week's Topic: Creating a Legacy by Living Legendary
Kiana Maria often looks around Arizona and sees living legends because Arizona is such a young state. She has often wondered and has discovered that many legends create an opportunity for their children to be successful. She has since analyzed this and realized that one of the best things is for children to watch legacy in the making.

Kiana Maria is an entrepreneur who owns Hand and Hand Business Consulting, LLC which specializes in educational policy, governmental relations, housing and small business startups. Kiana Maria is also an award-winning international speaker and co-author of “Empowering Women to Succeed by Turning Tragedy into Triumph”.

Kiana Maria Sears serves in her second term as the first African American woman to be elected to the Mesa Public Schools Governing Board. In fact, she is the first minority elected to the board. Born to a Vietnam veteran father and a career civil servant mother who were natives of New Orleans, Kiana Maria has always been energized by public service. It has always been a way of life which was role modeled by her parents. Kiana Maria is extremely passionate about the field of public administration and has been a public servant for her entire adult career.

Civically, Kiana Maria devotes her time to social justice in all forms. She is currently serving a second term as the NAACP East Valley Branch president.
