About Tanya Tanis:

My name is Tanya and I'm a 15 year old from Brooklyn, NY. I grew up around females mostly since my father is the only male in the family. I have one sibling, my sister Kathie. I have always been taught to do whatever I believe I can do and want to achieve by my father. Since I was the athletic girl in the family he encouraged me to play sports which started my love for sports. I currently play flag football and basketball. I encourage girls to play sports because they are fun and to have new experiences. It is important for girls to do what guys say is not possible for a girl to do. I am a member of Girls Incorporated of New York City at the Urban Assembly Institute of Math and Science for Young Women, an all-girls public school focusing on math & science. I have hopes of becoming an OB/GYN

Tanya Tanis's Favorite Sports:

Basketball, WNBA
