Personal experiences with the name Kiara: | Edit

In 2nd grade, I had a friend name Kiara. She didn't like it much only because that was the year that the Lion King 2 (Simba's Pride) came out. But I thought it was a cool name.

I have a friend named Kiara. Shes kind and worthy of trust. She treats everyone like they are kings and queens and she is but a humble servent. She always does what helps others even if it makes her life harder. She doesn't know how pretty she is. She plays Minecraft and has the coolest skins her older bro makes. I think she likes SpongeBob, but Whatevar. She don't know it but we treat her like a queen, because of all she does for us. Her mid name is Rose! :D Hope this helps!
