"I'm a lover of all people. I have a very caring heart, which leads me to feed the homeless people in my community each week. I went back to school to study social work to enable myself to help others. I love to travel and have fun!"

What is your favorite OWN show?
I love the Oprah Winfrey Network and watch so many shows I can't choose.

What are your three favorite things?
My three favorite things would have to be my ministry (which feeds the homeless in my community), my iPhone (so I can be on the go with social media) and traveling! I love to travel!

What would your superpower be?
If I had a superpower, I would create a place with no hurt, hunger or pain. I would be able to fly all around the world, creating a domino effect of good to help others!

Who is your hero?
I actually have two heroes. My first hero is my mother because she is so strong. She lost my father to a massive heart attack. My mother was married to my dad for 42 beautiful years, so for her to be able to go on and live a productive life showed me just how much strength my mother has. She is a very loving and warm person, and I just love her so much!

My second hero is Ms. Oprah Winfrey!!! Oprah is the true definition of the woman I want to be. We both have some of the same background, and she has proven to me that dreams do come true! I love her just like a second mother. She has such a warm smile and a great personality. My dream is to someday just shake her hand and say thank you.

What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
The first thing I do in the morning is thank my Maker for yet another day and post an inspirational quote.

What is the last thing you do before you go to bed?
The last thing I do every night is pray! That's a must in my life.

What is the one item you can't live without, and why?
The one thing I can't live without is social media!

What do you like that most people dislike?
Strangers.

What are you proudest of?
I'm proudest of my achievements over a short time. I'm also proud of my children!

What is your biggest pet peeve?
My pet peeve is someone talking too much! Interrupting me while I'm speaking or starting to talk to someone while I'm talking to them is so rude!

What would you like to learn to do?
I would love to learn to ski! Hahaha!

What are you particularly bad at that your friends tease you about?
I am bad at getting rest. My friends call me an overachiever. I don't know how to take time for myself and just rest.
