1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
During a morning hike with my husband, I eagerly attempted to capture the beauty of the sunrise with a photo but became so distracted that I walked right into a fence. Despite my faceplant, my husband and I couldn't stop laughing. We learned to always watch for unexpected obstacles and cherish the memories of life's not-so-graceful moments.
2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
My most important kitchen essentials are my coffee maker and chocolate stash. A morning without coffee is like a day without sunshine, and chocolate is my secret weapon to show love. It's perfect for curing a bad day or a broken heart. Together, they're unbeatable. Remember, a spoonful of sugar and a smile can make any dish taste better!
3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
Despite being mistaken for younger than my actual age, I am a seasoned registered nurse with years of expertise in caring for patients and saving lives. As the founder of a non-profit organization, I strive to provide healthcare resources to underserved communities. Through my advocacy and volunteer work, I aim to inspire positive change in the world. Though some may underestimate me because of how young I look, those who get to know me realize that I am a driven and accomplished woman.
4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
As the leader of The Blueprint Foundation Inc, I developed a strategic plan, delegated tasks, and motivated the team through various obstacles for our medical mission trips and bi-yearly events in Guyana traveling from the United States. My leadership skills proved to be instrumental in achieving our goals and making a positive impact in the communities we serve. I’ve continued to lead teams on similar trips and remain passionate about this work for the last 5 years.
5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
I would definitely take on the challenge of skydiving. I mean, what better way to conquer your fears than by jumping out of a plane at 10,000 feet? I believe that life is all about taking risks and stepping outside of your comfort zone. And let's be real, fear is just a state of mind. If you don't face it head-on, you'll never know what incredible experiences and opportunities you may be missing out on.
