Further to the articles, Tanya’s outstanding commitment and talent led her to be one of 11 candidates who received a scholarship from the FWSF. These ladies were selected from a pool of 90 plus other highly talented ladies who interviewed for the scholarships in 2014. Sarah Whitelaw or Hall Capital had this to say of her mentee – “Tanya’s commitment to pursuing a master’s degree in financial engineering at Haas WHILE raising an infant is truly inspiring. Either of those endeavors on their own are daunting and to think that she is taking on the challenge of both simultaneously leaves me in awe. Of Tanya’s many attributes, in particular I admire her humility, positive spirit and dedication to BOTH career and family. She is quick to smile and her laugh is infectious. Any employer would be very fortunate to have her on their team!”
