Who inspires you to be a better person?
I am surrounded by them! Our first inspirations come from those closest to us. I have parents who inspire me to be selfless, love unconditionally and be persistent. Sisters who inspire me to keep an open mind, be understanding and kind. Friends who inspire me to be calm, patient and keep a good attitude. They all motivate me to be better to/for myself in order to project it for them and then on to everyone else.
If you could send a text message to the entire world, what would you say in 2 sentences?
We are all one race, the human race and we only have one home, the planet earth. It takes more energy to work against each other than it does to bridge the gap between our differences and work together in resolving the issues that impact humanity now and in the future.
What did you want to be when you were a kid?
My mom says I wanted to be a vet, but I've always wanted to be in fashion.
Who taught you how to cook? What was the first thing they taught you how to make?
My mother taught me how cook. I don't remember distinctly what the first thing was... but I was always involved in making desserts. Then I moved onto helping with cooking dinner for the family. She showed me how to follow recipes that we could barely read.
Why could you barely read them? She would get butter and oil on them and the ink would start to wear off.
