What does it mean to be a modern woman?
The modern woman carries herself in a way that exudes confidence. She is independent, educated, and daring. To be a modern woman, she understands and know what she is capable of, and has no fear or worry about reaching her goals.

When does a girl become a woman?
A woman is born when a girl comes to accept who she is, both physically, mentally and spiritually. She fully transforms when she loves who she is becoming...when she embraces herself and walks with love and confidence.

How do you handle disappointment?
The best thing I have learned over time is that you are right where you are meant to be in life. When disappointment comes my way, I have learned to keep my head up, pray and most importantly, be grateful. Gratitude will humble you as well as keep you focused on what really matters.

What's been a picture-perfect moment in your life?
A memory I cherish is with my late grandmother. The last time I had seen her I held her hand, said I love you, and she said “I love you more”. That moment is seared into my memory and is full of so much love, faith, and emotion. If I had the ability to print out that scene I would, because it reminds me of the love that surrounds me.

How do you handle stress and pressure?
As a Digital Media Coordinator, I am faced with stress and pressure from my clients to produce quality digital media content. My favorite way to cope is to practice self love and care. Meditating, writing, and affirming my actions have helped me to remind myself that I am a confident and modern woman capable of my goals.
