Tanya’s Story

Tanya was a single mom cobbling together part-time jobs as she went through night school. As if that weren’t enough to juggle, she worked to lose more than 50 lbs at the same time.

When Tanya landed an office job, none of her office clothes fit anymore. When she came to Wings, her volunteer dresser found Tanya had shed 50 lbs but not the low self-esteem that can come with being overweight. Dressing Tanya began a transformation into clothes to fit her new self, not just in size but also in pride. Tanya modeled her new outfits with pride when her daughter and mother came to pick her up and found “the new Tanya.”
