Tanya Like Tucker – FAMM

Tanya Like Tucker

My government name is Tanya, everyone wants to pronounce it Tonya. i say it’s Tanya like Tucker, so for 6 1/2 years i have been Tucker. most people in prison don’t even know my real last name and even the officers call me Tucker because it’s easier than my last name. it’s going to be a real challenge when i get out in the next few months to go home and be called Tanya!
