I was born…

In Houston, Texas to an Asian father and Latina mother back when interracial marriages weren’t common. Growing up, I learned to become pliable to extreme polarity of cultures, ideologies, and traditions. I am grateful! I innately became open-minded and engaging to mores and norms that aren’t always my own. Success in life has, at its core, the requisite to be malleable and agile in response to the “curve balls” that come your way. Being bi-racial taught me to be both of those things.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

The weather. Some like it hot…I’m in that group.

I’m listening to…

my playlist on my portable blue tooth speaker (obsessed with that thing!). Specifically: Between the Raindrops by Lifehouse featuring Natasha Bedingfield

My family…

the nucleus consists of myself, my son, and his dad. My ex-husband and I remain close-knit friends. I count my blessings that my son, Cortez, has an incredibly committed and loving dad and that I have a successful relationship with him.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Bill Clinton. I find him polarizing, yet fascinating.

One thing I cannot live without…

prayer and meditation

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

fabulous

I’m inspired by…

people who are inspired, driven, and purposeful

The one person who motivates me is…

Cortez, my 13 year old son. I am inspired to live in a way that demonstrates (to him) ambition, compassion, and sincere interest in helping others achieve their goals.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

I’d add a healthy dose of tolerance and wipe out a ton of knee-jerk judgment.

The perfect day would be…

My first job was…

waiting tables at a popular breakfast joint in college. Fun job, great tips.

My favorite escape…

an awesome book (avid reader). I work too much and vacation too little. I will change that in 2013!

My life…

is perfect, even in the scary-tough times. Deeply grateful for excellent health, a strong mind, and a swollen heart.

 

I’m currently working on…

several projects: a couple are glamorous, several are bone-dry, and my favorites  keep me in awake-dreams all night.

Always…

bring it

Never…

gossip

 

Favorite Quote…

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to vanish by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again. Og Mandino

Biggest Dream…

This is might sound lame, but I’m living it! Not that things couldn’t be more, more, more, but I’ve got an attitude that “life is what you make it”. The power of one’s mind influences one’s own perception. I love and live my life with passion and purpose, and as a result, it’s a pretty darn good life.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

gossip and people who lack an interest in ‘bringing it’
