Currently going to college for her Bachelor's degree and having just purchased her first home, Tyronica has an overwhelming sense of gratitude to all who felt she wasn't hopeless and who took a chance on her future. Although she realizes she made bad choices in her past, she now feels a sense of overall goodness in her life. She is motivated every day by her daughter, who is a successful pharmacist, as well as her granddaughters, her mother and her grandmother. Tyronica has also worked in the Baltimore City School system for the last four and a half years as a teacher's aide, and loves to help the students by giving them extra one-on-one time. Her view on life now is that even though one makes mistakes, it's possible to recover from them. Just dust yourself off, get up and get moving again.
