What is a strength you have that has helped you achieve success? What is one weakness you have had and how have you overcome it in the pursuit of your goals?
Determination is my strength, I never give up on myself or my dreams. When I set out to accomplish something/anything I put my heart and soul into it.

My success is based on my genuine day to day happiness.

Everything actually, it's kinda the nature of anxiety, so I strive to overcome it all.

Seeing my #instabook become an actually book this year !!!
What keeps you going when you feel discouraged?
My support system, it takes a tribe man and I'm blessed with such amazing loving people.
What's one material thing you cannot live without?
My music playlists they are so soothing and I use it as a means of therapy.
If you could say one thing to girls/women around the world what would it be?
Listen to your inner voice, it's strong and wants/needs to be heard don't be scared of what it tells you.
A special THANK YOU to this amazing woman and her willingness to share her story!
