• I'm most proud in my life of never allowing a setback to determine my destination.
• If I could have a superpower, it would be the ability to speak every language in the world, to effectively communicate with all people across the globe.
• I'm inspired by women who have walked their own journey and have proved time and time again that it is possible for a woman to become whatever she wants to be.
• If I had to describe myself in one word it would be tenacious!
• I'm happiest when I am surrounded by the people I love.
• I can't live without sugar!
