Oh, what a friend we have in Jesus but it's good to know that you can also make some friends at Centennial AME Zion Church so we'd like to introduce you to Ms. Tessira Tcon Wade. She has been a member of Centennial for her whole life of 24 years and is the YACM or Young Adult Christian Missionary president. Born March 19th in Rock Hill, SC, she is an alumni of Claflin University where she became a soror of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. A saying that she lives by is, "Float like a duck, under water work hard but on top, always appear calm and sireen." She prides her greatest accomplishment in receiving her Marketing Degree and is now pursuing an additional degree in Accounting. Tessira always believed that if she was going to be famous for anything, it would be for business. She has always been an advocate of education and dreamed of being a teacher as a child. Her favorite teacher coming up was Lani Helms because she was so nice and pushed her creatively.
Most people call her Tcon but her friends & coworkers affectionately call her Tess. She is currently a Mortgage Unit Assitant at a Citi Financial. She has a very loving family that includes a wonderful mom, Brenda & dad, Darryl, two brothers, Darryl & Andre, and two sisters, DeeDee & India. She would like to one day meet her grandfather so he can set the record straight. Her worst fear is that she will lose one of her loved ones suddenly because her family is very important to her. She says that the nicest thing someone has ever done for her was her mom giving her life. If she had one wish, she would wish that she could supply everything for her family but would buy herself a house if she came into some money. The place she wants to visit the most is The Bahamas because it looks so nice. Like most women, she chooses her stomach as the the part of her body that she wants to change first. She plays tennis but her favorite sport is basketball and she enjoys the Wii & playing the Wii Resort games for fun. Her most beautiful quality is her personality because she is a natural 'people person' but thinks she is too blunt and can't stand liars.
The first thing she does each morning is hit the snooze button and her favorite Bible book is Genesis because it tells about the beginning of everything. A few things most people don't know about Tessira is that she speaks a little French and plays the piano. The worst gift she ever got was socks, would save her photo box if her house was on fire, and hopes to have a solar powered satellite phone if she was stranded on a desert island. Ms. Wade enjoyed reading Steve Harvey's book, Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man & Cosmo magazine is her choice at the newsstand. But if she is watching a movie, she prefers a superhero action flick like Wolverine and when watching television she likes Leverage. Her favorite singers are her mom & dad. Her most delicious dish is fish and she just loves to drink ginger ale but has a weakness for her favorite restaurant, The Cheesecake Factory.
