The most influential person in Tia’s life is her father. He has given her the confidence to follow her dreams. Tia says she is lucky to have a parent who supports all of her hopes and dreams. “Without him in my life I don’t think I would be who I am today.”
“There have been two teachers in my high school career who have gone out of their way to help me. The first is Mrs. Windham. I believe she is the main reason why I want to be a theatre teacher. I never thought I was good at anything until my freshman year in theatre. Mrs. Windham gave me a lead role and believed in me 100%. I appreciate everything she has ever done for me, from helping me with my acting career to giving me the inspiration to teach. Another teacher I appreciate is Mrs. Eaglen. Mrs. Eaglen has been a motherly figure this past year. She has gone out of her way to help me with day to day teenage troubles in addition to making FCCLA a big impact in my life.”
