Flashback to when you were 10 years old. What do you want to be when you grow up?
Growing up, I watched a lot of CSI and Law and Order which made me want to be a police officer/detective. There are so many wrongly convicted people, and people who get off easy for crimes they committed. Something that still doesn’t sit well with me.
What are your superpowers?
My memory is really great, but especially when it comes to navigating directions even when I have only been to the destination once or twice.
What is or would be your personal motto?
Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it to happen and take steps to make it happen.
What’s got you thinking right now?
With so much negativity surrounding the Coronavirus, there are some beautiful things happening around the world as an outcome. One of many being, the decrease in pollution has allowed the water in the Venice canal to finally clear up. Proof that things aren’t always as bad as they seem.
Share something about you that would most surprise people.
My grandmother is a very talented painter and she taught me how to paint at a young age. I still use those skills to express myself by painting a variety of styles.
