What was the best advice you’ve ever received? Who gave you the advice? The best advice I have ever received was from my mom who has always lead me to rely on my faith in difficult situations.

Where do you see yourself in five years? In five years, I hope to be the first college graduate in my family. I see myself continuing in the field of psychology to receive my doctorate.

If you could change anything about this world, what would it be and why? I have always believed that the world could be more kind. Negativity is toxic and is constantly being spread. Imagine a world full of acceptance and helping hands. “To be kind is more important than to be right. Many times what people need is not a brilliant mind that speaks, but a brilliant heart that listens.”
