Yes my Mother I’m very grateful. She allowed me the freedom to make my own choices at a young at. She let me choose my high school and college and it set me up for success.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
I aspire to inspire is my favorite quote. This is the name of my book. I live by this quote. I want to be an inspiration to anyone that comes into contact with me. I want to be able to lead people to do great things. It’s relevant in my life because I was counted out at an early age but I persevered through the trials and tribulations.
