Community Service & Involvement

I have spent my time donating holiday themed gifts to children once again this year at the local food pantry. I have collected household items for comminity members who have had house fires to help them start over. Donated boxes of clothes to the local clothing drives. Spent a lot of time volunteering at sporting events such as basketball football and cheering for the local schools.

I am a manager of a local pizza shop..
Since the whole coronavirus pandemic has really taken off i have been sending free pizzas to the local police and fire department weekly as an appreciation.

Talents & Skills

I am most passionate about being my children’s cheerleader at every event they perform in. However when it comes to myself, I love writing short stories. I enjoy photography. Being in front of the camera is not as easy but I very much enjoy taking photos and editing them.

I live to cook and bake. Growing up as a little girl I was always in my grandmother’s kitchen with her and my aunts learning how to run a kitchen. I have made several dozen cakes for events and love the nervous rush of the process.

Above all else I love to sing. Whether I am in the kitchen cooking, cleaning or just sitting in my favorite chair going through my favorite songs on YouTube. There is such a relaxation and therapy about singing.

Essay #1

When I was younger I wanted to be a model but it wasn’t supported and then grew up, had kids, didn’t think it was possible. Until I was given an opportunity to be a live fashion show model for years. Always wanted to be in pageants but that wasn’t supported either and now I am jumping in. I’m not only showing my children they can be anything they want to be and do anything they want to do, but I am showing the little girl in me that I never forgot her dreams and will do my best to make them happen.

Essay #2

Does it have to be a famous person? If I am being completely honest, if I were given the opportunity to spend the day with any woman it would be my best friend. I met her when I was 5 and we were practicing inseparable until I was 15 and she was tragically killed in a car accident. 21 years have passed and I still wish for just one more day. To tell her everything I have accomplished, to introduce her to my children. To tell her how much she has been a driving force in my life and it hasn’t ever changed.
There are many amazing women I would enjoy a day with but if I could only pick one it will always be her.

Easy #3

Three of the four seasons..I am not a fan of winter by any stretch of the imagination but spring when flowers bloom, summer for the heat and fall for the leaves changing, they are all magical. If you just sit and take it all in there is magic in the universe and we get to experience all of it. Winter is beautiful as well I just dont like being cold and winter takes me away from the ocean.
