Tanya Wright

A native of the Bronx, New York, Wright, a highly intuitive and independent woman, figuratively grew up with her mother who was 15 years of age when she gave birth to the first of four children. It was her grandmother’s support and loving guidance that served as the cornerstone of her youth. While her mother earned graduate degrees and became a health care professional, she and her younger sister received scholarships to the George School in Pennsylvania, a Quaker boarding school. Wright then completed an independent/writing major at Vassar College.
