In 2013 I married my husband Simon Davies, and every day I am convinced that was one of the best decisions of my life!

My name is Tiffany Baca, and I’m 27 years old from Stockton, California. I have been in South Africa a month so far working with the amazing ministry of Justice Doll, a job creation program in Masiphumelele. My hope is to continue to spread the word and to be a support to the women who make it all happen. I love deep talks about life, and I can make a mean guacamole.
