Tamira’s Story








January 30th 2020


Where did you grow up and what did you like about your home town?

I grew up in Tallahassee, FL. I like the overall area of Tallahassee and I enjoy that most of my family lives here. We enjoy going to the parks in Tallahassee and we also enjoy going fishing.

Do you have any brothers or sisters?

I have two sisters and one brother. They all live in Tallahassee and we enjoy fishing together.  I have a 5-year-old daughter and she loves Science.

Do you have any goals you would like to achieve in the short term, long term, or both?

Short term- I want to continue to build myself as a mom so I can overall provide for my daughter. My long-term goal is to start a college fund for my daughter.

What would constitute a perfect day for you?

My perfect day would start by having a day off, teaching my daughter to go fishing and I would sum it all up with having an overnight fishing/camping trip. We would eat from the sea!  I want to show the things that my dad taught me to my daughter.

What is your most treasured memory? 

My most treasured memory was when my dad taught me how to change a car tire. It came in handy one day when my daughter and I had a blown tire on the highway and I was able to change the tire on my own, thanks to my dad teaching me how to be an independent woman. He gave me that “I can” spirit.
