What does it mean to be a modern woman?
A modern woman means that a woman carries herself in a way that others will look at her as a person who values qualities of the present time. She is knowledgeable about the world around her. She carries herself with elegance and class while always being the person that others will continuously look up to.

When does a girl become a woman?
Most would say that a girl becomes a woman when her body begins to go through the process of becoming a woman, but there is much more to consider. The day a girl becomes a woman is when she decides that she is going to reach a higher maturity level, be an advocate for herself and others, grow as a human being, and carry herself as she is an adult in this world.

How do you handle disappointment?
I use disappointment as a reminder to view my thoughts in a different viewpoint; as well as, a learning experience to further myself and achieve something greater. I handle disappointment as a way to remind myself that everything will not always work out as I have anticipated. Of course disappointment can still hurt, but when I focus on the positive that could come from the situation everything works out for the better.

What's been a picture-perfect moment in your life?
From the moment I saw her, I knew that she was going to be mine. She is my loveable and very playful 2 year old mini labradoodle. Sadie has allowed me to grow as an adult with responsibilities, accompanied and supported me throughout the pandemic, and has been by my side while beginning nursing school. Sadie May is so much more than a furry friend; she is my best friend.

How do you handle stress and pressure?
When I find myself in a time of stress, I take a step back and allow myself to take time to think, breathe, and regroup myself on the task. I often remind myself that stress is normal but only temporary. Being under pressure makes me strive to make myself work harder to achieve my goals to my utmost ability.
