What are the 3 words you would use to describe yourself?
God-Fearing, Creative, Bold
What is your biggest fear about the future?
My biggest fear is losing my parents before they get to fully enjoy the fruits of their labour which is my success.
What would be the title of your memoir and why?
A voice for the voiceless:
I spent half of my life thinking that my voice didn’t carry much weight. I experienced abuse when I was young and it silenced me until I finally spoke out. I’ve found my voice, it’s powerful. My memoir would highlight the importance of having a voice and helping women find theirs.
“We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced.”
– Malala Yousafzai

Purpose. I know that I have been given an assignment on this Earth and waking up is a sign that I haven’t completed it yet. That’s enough reason for me to get out of bed.

My definition of success is doing what I love and having those around me benefit from it.
