Tiara Abraham earned her master’s degree from Indiana University, an accomplishment that makes her the youngest to do so in 2024 across all IU campuses statewide. “Today has been a whirlwind of emotion. It’s been full of joy,” said Abraham. The teen graduated from Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music with a master’s degree in music of voice.

Now, she’s the youngest person to earn the degree across all IU campuses in 2024, and she did it with a 4.0 GPA throughout her academic career.

Tiara Abraham became a Mensa member at age 4, began college courses at age 7, and celebrated her Sweet 16 with an undergraduate degree from UC Davis in California. It’s the same school her older brother Tanishq earned his PhD at 19.

“My dream job is to perform around the world in established opera houses and just make people happy with my voice,” she said.

“I truly believe in the power of music, and I’m blessed with a beautiful voice, and I just want to make use of that,” she said.

Abraham has been invited to sing at several commencement ceremonies at many renowned places over the years. She will sing the national anthem at IU’s undergrad ceremony on Saturday.
