What's the most sensible thing you've ever heard someone say?
As a Christian woman and teacher, I always come back to a saying from Martin Luther King Jr., “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.
What gets you excited about life?
I truly find simple joys get me excited about life. After being extremely sick for two years, I lost a lot of time with family and friends. Being in surgical remission, has allowed me to live life again. Just smelling a cup of coffee or feeling the wind on my face put the biggest smile on my face and have taught me to not take a moment of my health for granted.
If you had to teach something what would you teach?
As a first-grade teacher, every year, I teach my children how to work together to be a community. In our classroom, we work together and solve problems together, we become a family. We accept and love one another while being the best versions of ourselves we can be. If I can teach anything to others, it would be to embrace your unique abilities and be confident in who you are.
How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?
I feel I would be 30 years old. I felt very established at that age but still full of energy. I was already a full-time wife, mother, and educator. It was also when I feel I started to be my most confident self.
What is your idea of a fun date night?
My husband and I love to watch scary movies. Our first date was dinner and a scary movie so our ideal date night is a delicious dinner and a movie and then we end our night cuddling on our couch with our pit bull, Dunkin and cat, Cappuccino.
