We are so excited to introduce our new Cycle brand ambassador, Kiana Knolland!
As the 2013-2014 National Youth of the Year for Boys & Girls Club of America, she served as the official BGCA teen spokesperson, advocating for nearly 4 million Boys & Girls Club youth and all of America’s young people. The honor recognizes youth who have overcome odds and demonstrated exceptional character and accomplishments.
Kiana overcame significant obstacles in her life including adoption, growing up in a single parent household, and dealing with her mother’s health problems. As a young girl she was presented with many trials and tribulations, but she refused to let her obstacles define her. While living in Wichita, Kansas she was awarded the Champion of Change Award and the Definition of Greatness Service Award for Youth. In 2013, Kiana was presented with the Gold President’s Volunteer Service Award. Kiana also had the priviledge to meet with President Obama in the Oval Office. Her freshman year of college at Howard University was a bit atypical... she met with Speaker of the House John Boehner, Condoleeza Rice, Colin Powell, Kelly Rowland, Patti Labelle, Misty Copeland, Shawn White, Goldie Hawn, and a host of other celebrities and political figures.
Kiana considers herself to be a girls empowerment enthusiast. She believes that there is nothing more important than uplifting girls across the world! Her drive, ambition and mission to empower girls everywhere is why we think she is perfect brand ambassador.
Kiana inspires us, and we know she will inspire you too!
