Hi my name is Tiera Goff, I live in Minersville, Utah and I am currently a senior at Beaver High School. I grew up playing sports and working on the farm. I have played basketball and soccer for four years on the high school team and I made academic all-state for both sports. I also love to play with my dog Kia.
