Tanisha D. Davis was born on February 29, 1984 in Mobile, Alabama. At only the young age of six, she found herself growing up in and out of Foster Care homes and dealing with a host of family issues. It was at the age of 13 that she made a decision to not allow her childhood experiences to break her. She began discovering her passion for writing and used that as a way to escape the harsh realities of her life and reach others in the process. Tanisha attended the Mobile County Training Middle School in Mobile, Alabama and was constantly recognized there for her gift to write poetry and more. She was selected to perform her poetry daily during the morning announcements and promoted to be in The Gifted Program for youth who held a 4.0 grade average, as well as chosen to be a member of the National Junior Honors Society. By high school, after being placed back in Foster Care by a relative, Tanisha did not allow that to stop her from reaching others in similar situations. At the age of 17, she served one year as the President over the Gulf Coast Therapeutic Independent Living Program, in Mobile, Alabama, which is designed to motivate teens who were currently living in Foster Care, on how to live a successful life outside of the system. At the age of 19, she went on to speak at Women’s Conferences in local churches within her community.
