Tell us about yourself! Who are you? Where are you from? What do you do?
I am Kiara Moore, a traveler, model and lifestyle influencer. I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. I moved to Atlanta, Georgia to attend Spelman College for my Bachelor's and Georgia Institute of Technology for my Master's. After schooling, I became an Engineer and began my career with The Home Depot corporate office.
Share with us the experience that caused you to catch the travel bug?
I have been a traveler since I was a kid. I became an avid traveler during my senior year of High School. I took a trip with my Spanish class to Spain. I went to Barcelona and Madrid, I was in love with the art, beauty and culture of these two places. While on this trip, I realized I needed to see the world. Ever since, I have been determined to do so. My goal is to receive, at minimum, 1 stamp on my passport per year.
What was your most memorable travel experience and what made it so memorable?
My most memorable travel experience was Bali. I watched Eat, Pray, Love prior to traveling to Bali so I was super excited to travel there. It was just like I imagined, so relaxing. I traveled through Bali for a week and stayed in Ubud, Seminyak and Kuta Selatan. Bali was so memorable for me because of how peaceful it was. I have never felt so relaxed on a trip before. Plus, everyone was very kind and very polite.
How many countries have you been to and which is your favorite? What was it about the country that earned your number one spot?
I have been to 19 countries. I am planning my trip to my 20th country right now! I would have to say my favorite country so far is Greece. If I could describe Greece in 1 word, it would be "Breathtaking". The buildings were so unique, the views of the water were amazing and didn't even seem real.
You take the most beautiful pictures! How do you do it?
I take all of my pictures on an iPhone. I also make whoever I am traveling with, take my pictures lol! Every now and then I will take my tripod with me but I rarely use my tripod. Also, most times I have an idea of the shot I want to take.
Where else can folks find you?
Aside from Instagram, I can be found on YouTube. My channel is titled Kiara Moore. My Youtube channel consists of traveling and modeling vlogs.
Here are some more of our favorite travelers and their gorgeous shots.

Perspective is everything! For many of us, we dream of more travel but are at a loss on how to get there. One is left thinking only travel influencers are able to travel as frequently as we wish to, but it's simply not the case.
Meet our TCT Tasha who combined her love of travel and helping others by becoming a traveling Occupational Therapist.
