Hey beautiful people! My name is Tanya. I am excited about being the new member of the wonderful Canaan Project team. It is sweet to have the opportunity and pleasure to be working with young women in Tower Hamlets. I have already been blessed by all the girls I have met.

So a little about me. I was born and raised in East London and I love and have a passion for this city and the people in it – especially young people. I love London because it is my home, but also the pure fact that its taught me a lot about myself. My passion for young people started with my youth worker Margaret – what an inspiration. She was there for me to talk to, someone that empowered me and was a role model to me.

I am passionate about empowering and supporting a generation that is not always heard and often blamed for things which they don’t always have the right to be blamed for. I am passionate about working with young women, especially teenage mothers, to ensure they achieve their hopes and dreams, not being written off by themselves or others because they had their child(ren) young. I want young women to reach their potential and know that they can achieve – the sky is the limit.

Over and Out.
