How would you describe your own personality?
I’m a strong woman who loves unconditionally, fights for what is right and never gives up no matter what life throws at her! I’m someone who carries her imperfections, with confidence and a wide smile on her face with style!
Who is the most influential person in your life?
My grandmother! She has been there for me ever since I was born. She’s the person who taught me how to live a life free of worries and how to find the good in everybody. She’s the most loving person in my family and I’ve seen her cooking for the entire family even at an old age when my mother was away. The fact that she loves every child as her own makes her all the more beautiful. I gifted her a phone 2 years back when I had to travel away from home for work and she always makes sure to call me every other day! I have and will always look up to her as the most influential person in my life.
