Her family consists of her parents, Mark and Denise, siblings Stephanie and Brandon, a Pomeranian dog, Roxy, and a one-eared orange cat, Jasmine. Tiffany joined the Fourth of July program in search of an adventure to improve her self confidence and a little scholarship cash. So far, she thinks she has become a better public speaker, yet she hopes in the future to improve even more, so that she can fulfill her dream of being a TV news anchor. One thing that Tiffany has learned through being a part of this Scholarship Program is how much work the Fourth Of July Committee puts into the Celebration. She had no idea they had so many things they had to deal with each and every year! Wow! Tiffany has had many fun and memorable moments from this program and her experiences through it already, but she is anxious to see what awaits her at the end.
