I am a Bay Area Native who has dedicated her life to improving the lives of low income/ethnic minority students.

I am the College/Career Advisor for a non-profit organization called the I Have a Dream Foundation which "adopted" a third grade class from one of the most impoverished areas of Oakland, CA, and has raised them in the program for the past 9 years. The goal of this program is to help these students achieve personal and academic goals above and beyond their circumstances.

It is my feeling that it is critical for full-sized women to be seen as beautiful, intelligent and sexy right along with their slimmer counterparts.

I am very active and also enjoy belly dancing, kickboxing, jogging and tennis. Quieter moments find me painting, drawing or snuggling up to my 8 year old kitty, Buster.

Tesia is 5'10" and an On the Plus Side size 4X.
