Wild Fact About Me I have been to more than eight schools.
My Philosophy Importance is defined by the 5 influential Is: Intelligence, Imagination, Integrity, Intuition, and Insight.
What Gives Me Hope In life, there are setbacks to surmount, barriers to break, and obstacles to overcome. Despite all the roadblocks to success, every challenge can serve as a catalyst for change.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Adequate and Affordable Health Care, Legal Services, and Education for All.
What/who changed my life and why My greatest role models are those who were able to overcome adversity and become a benefactor to others. I hope to leave my mark on the world in a way that would uplift all people to see the beacon of light within the strength of every human spirit.
