My name is Tanya Stanley. I am a 22-year-old living in the beautiful and historical Boston, Massachusetts.

Although I was born in the United States, I spent the majority of my childhood living in Ireland. Both of my parents were born and raised in Ireland; my father being from Dublin, and my mother from Donegal.

I am currently studying at Bridgewater State University where I am majoring in Psychology in hopes to become a clinical psychologist or a therapist. This field requires a lot of empathy and patience to help those that are struggling with a mental disorder, something that I want to make sure they can overcome. I plan on furthering my education to obtain my Master's degree to broaden my knowledge as much as possible.

I am very bubbly, outgoing and kind-hearted. I enjoy spending time with friends and family and making memories that will last a lifetime.

I am truly honoured to be representing as the 2019 Boston & New England Rose in Tralee and I am excited for the rest of the year and what it has in store!
