Quote to live by
I like the motto, "Everything happens for a reason." At the time it isn't always clear why something is happening, but it is important to have trust and learn from your experiences. Happiness is where you find it, but rarely where you seek it. By finding the good in any situation, happiness will find you

I have always loved dancing and basketball. This is a great way to enjoy both.
My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. This is a time when my out of town relatives gather at one home to spend a long weekend together.
I really enjoy staying in and watching movies. A few of my favorites are Braveheart, Glory Road, Count of Monte Cristo, Troy, and Wedding Crashers.

What is the best gift you have ever received?
My grandma was making me a doll for my birthday. It was going to be a surprise. She passed away before she was able to give it to me. One of her friends knew about the doll and surprised me with it. It is the only thing I have from her so I really cherish it.
would like to be a School Social Worker and continue to dance, and possibly teach dance.
