What was the best advice you ever received? Who gave you the advice?


The best advice I have received was from my mom, “Life is filled with hard times and good times. Learn from everything you can and never lose faith.”


Where do you see yourself in 5 years?


In 5 years I see myself starting my career as a Registered Nurse, and going back to school to start a nurse anesthesia program.


If you could change anything about this world, what would it be and why?


With everything going on in today’s world one thing I would change is world peace. If there is a lesson to be learned, it is the useless suffering of our soldiers. The effect will be economic devastation, corruption and chaos.


If you could invite 3 people to dinner (other than relatives), who would it be and why?


If I could invite 3 people to dinner one would be Ellen DeGeneres because she displays courage, acceptance and kindness qualities. Another person I would invite is Lady Gaga, she is a great performer, talented, unique and creative. The last person I would invite is Jeffree Star, he is an influential makeup artist who have changed the beauty community.
