Charming Shoppes Inc is proud to honor TyKiah Wright of Columbus, Ohio for her efforts in serving her community. Ms. Wright is one of five finalists who are eligible to receive a $20,000 charitable grant to be used towards her organization, WrightChoice Inc, from Charming Shoppes' Voices.

One voice can lead to a chorus for change. Campaign. Ms. Wright will also receive a "Dream Come True" vacation for four to Walt Disney World Resort during the Year of a Million Dreams celebration. Finalists will be featured on MONTEL on Friday, February 22nd, 2008 during the one-hour Voices Winner's Finale.

"I was in total shock when I first found out I was one of the finalists selected," said Wright. "The recognition by Charming Shoppes' Voices Campaign is truly amazing, inspiring and humbling, especially because there were thousands of highly competitive nominees."

Voices is an annual campaign sponsored by Charming Shoppes that honors women across America for their passion, leadership and achievements as everyday women who raise their voice to create positive change. Wright was selected from thousands of women from across the country who were nominated with essays describing the difference they have made in their communities. This year's nominations recognized women championing causes from natural disaster relief and medical research, to working with seniors and disabled persons.

TyKiah Wright was diagnosed with Muscular Neuropathy as a child and has since been bound to a wheelchair. After completing her college degree and obtaining her MBA, Wright encountered obstacles in getting positions she felt she deserved.
