Sonia Sanchez once wrote, "she's a lady who has lived life instead of writing about it." Tyra is the girl who's writing about it.

Tyra is a reader, writer, character, and self-proclaimed wordplay connoisseur.

Tyra is many things, but most of all, she's a believer.

She believes in love. In loving yourself. In sacrifices. In dreams. In Blessings.
