As a title holder Tamara is passionate about her social impact initiative Preparation for Higher Education. As someone who struggled early in her Education due to her ADHD she passionately advocates for improved basic education by providing resources to students, speaking in classrooms, and by advocating to policy makers. Since first entering the organization she has spoken to over 2300 students and provided more than 2000$ in scholarships to young people. Furthermore, in 2017 Tamara was named the National Spokesperson for National Higher Education Day (NHED) which is observed annually on June 6th.
