A typical day in my life includes…

rise between 4am and 4:30am to soak up the LOVE waves the Lord gives me. Drink 1 cup of water, eat a boiled egg and yogurt. I D R E A M! I make myself say THANK YOU. I am alive. I look at my vision book titled, “KINGDOM DREAMS” I focus on what I want to do and where I believe I am going. I choose life and vibrancy. I give myself a PEP talk!! I am enough, I embrace me, I like me, I love me and I am beautiful. Why do I do this? Because who else is going to tell you your beautiful? My own voice is the one I believe the most and that is true for you too!

I leave my house to walk to work at about 7:10am. I create my work to do list, prepare coffee and get the conference rooms ready for meetings. By 8am and throughout the day, I get a social high. I work hard, laugh and joke around with my coworkers all the time. Specially, my work brother named Chris. If you only knew him 😀 I answer the phone if the receptionist cannot, taken inventory, order supplies, update and modify processes. I am the corporate Administrative Assistant at SWCA Environmental Consultants and I just love that job.

By 4:30pm, I am walking home still trying to figure out SnapChat. I posted my first SNAP last week, haha! It’s so much fun. I work out (at home) and make dinner all at the same time. The menu this week:

Chicken

Quinoa with veggies. It’s delicious!

I then spend time with God. He is my friend and He’s never hurt me. I then go to sleep. It’s about 9:30 now. It’s past my bedtime, haha.

I was born…

in Lawrence, KS 😉

My favorite thing about Arizona…

just one? The sunsets. This is the only place that gives off the beautiful pink rays in the sky when the sun is going down. It’s the perfect opportunity to let go and dream.

I’m listening to…

My family…

is beautiful and crazy at the same time. More supportive then I realized. Destined for greatness!

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

Devon Franklin.

One thing I cannot live without…

my bible and Chapstick. That order. The bible energizes me and gives me muscles. Chapstick saves my lips every day.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an actor. When I was in 7th grade, my locker (first ever and I was totally thrilled) was next to the drama classroom. The teachers would stand outside of the classrooms between classes. The drama teacher would look at me and say, “You look like an actor” I was so shy. Even by those words. I told her I was too shy. Like those words were justifiable and a good excuse! In my mind, they were at the time. She said this everyday for months. Actor, actor, actor. I soon just started smiling. Maybe I started to believe her? I realize this as I am typing. Anywho (yes, I say anywho) one day, I walked by my locker and like normal, she was standing outside her classroom door. She had a piece of paper in her hand. She handed it to me. I asked, “What’s this?” She said, “It’s a script” I didn’t even know what that was. She continued, there is an audition in Kansas City for a commercial titled, “The MeatGroup Chamber” I want you to audition. I said, “Okay” Yea, no enthusiasm at all. However, I thought it was cool that she thought of me like that.

That weekend, my family and I traveled to Salina, KS to stay with family for the weekend. I brought my script. I casually showed my cousin the script. We ended up rehearsing the entire night to get it right. I memorized the 2-page script in less than 24 hours. A few weeks later, I went to the audition. There were over 600 kids. In front of the camera, I had no idea how to act. I was asked to say my line again. I did. Feeling like I failed. But I didn’t…I got the part! It was a great experience at 13. I even got paid. I wanted to act, however, nothing came, after that. I let the dream go. Only to have it revived in me. Out of nowhere? Yes! But really, it wasn’t. The drama teacher planted seeds that aligned with a God given destiny. Those words the drama teacher spoke never left me. I am here today believing whole heartedly, that the drama teacher named Ms. FORD, helped make a pathway that I eventually found, for me to be in the running to be the next Face of Foothills winner and sign a contract with FORD Robert Black.

I’m inspired by…

the stories in SUCCESS magazine. The power of routine and those who wake up early. They really do catch the worm.

The one person who motivates me is…

Terri Savelle Foy. She used her weaknesses and turned them into powerful truths of how she overcame difficult life challenges.

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

the way people see themselves. I think if people focus on the good, that’s exactly what they will believe. The good in them. The impossible becoming possible.

 

 

 

The perfect day would be…

a day that I don’t let offense or hurtful words meddle with me a long time after the painful situation occurred.

My first job was…

at a pizza parlor called Mr. Gattis. I was 14. That’s how we did in Kansas 😊

My favorite escape…

music and meditation.

My life…

is an authentic script that nobody could live but me.

I’m currently working on…

filling this form out so I can go to bed, ha! I’m also working on establishing realistic fitness goals to get a mini 4 pack!

Always…

be thankful. I cannot say that enough!

Never…

say something out of anger that you will regret. Your anger will subside, but those words are hard to get out of the soul of the one you hurt.

Favorite Quote…

“Fail to plan <> Plan to fail.”

Biggest Dream…

to step into the opportunity I’ve been waiting, preparing for. To enter the modeling industry and use the platform to speak and say, “Go after your dreams, they are from God!”

My Pet Peeve(s)…

when someone chews with their mouth open. Oh my gosh, I cannot even tell you how much I cringe. I could be dining in the most talked about, enchanting restaurant. If the person I am with is smacking, it seems to flood my ears. That’s all I hear. I cannot stand it. Smacking, ugh ☹
