- Who has been your biggest inspiration?
How do I truly answer who inspires me? I guess that would be everyone that’s been in and out of my life then and now. It would also be myself from when I was a child. I have the drive to make a difference in others lives by being a supporting role because of this. Through my experiences, I’ve learned from everyone around me and I still am. This is what makes me want to continue learning and growing and to be my best self.
- Coffee or tea?
Both…. Depending on my mood.
- Browns or Bengals?
Neither. Preference is College ball. Born and raised as a Buckeye (Sorry Rachel).
- White or Purple rice?
Purple. How often do you eat something purple everyday? Plus, it’s healthy and delicious!
- Biggest goal in life?
I have a lot of goals and they all gear towards doing one ultimate thing and that is to do what makes me happy. What makes me happy? Music. Writing. Biking. Bibibop. Fiancé. Family. Friends. Taking Care of people and helping anyone in need.
- Celebrity crush?
Georges St. Pierre (GSP) Professional MMA fighter. My crush since middle school!
- Favorite quote?
“Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.” My reminder to stay humble and be a helping hand.
- What’s your latest obsession?
Makeup! Makeup! Makeup! The highlighting, contouring, and colorful lips. My love for makeup and the fun I have with it is my obsession. It always has been and always will be!
- How do you “Take Care Always”?
I take on after the most important woman in my life, my mother. From her, I’ve learned to do what I do best…. I live to serve others. It is important to give and expect nothing in return. That’s how I “Take Care Always!”
