One thing I cannot live without…

peace of mind. I need to have a moment to myself to self-reflect, pray, and get centered so I face the day’s challenges masterfully.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

veterinarian. My mom loves animals so I grew up with everything 🙂 It only seems natural to take care of them.

I’m inspired by…

so many people but mostly, right now in my life, my children. They surprise me everyday and I learn something new about them.

The one person who motivates me is…

Never…

give up on passion; you have everything you need within you.

Favorite Quote…

“Know Thyself” – Socrates. I recently came across this and it’s so applicable today.

Biggest Dream…

My Pet Peeve(s)…

when individuals settle for mediocracy because they do not want to try to achieve the greatness inside themselves.
