Your best asset?: friendliness and my smile
As a woman of empowerment, what is your "Magic"?: I believe our "magic" begins when we are created. We are all given special gifts and talents. Some of us discover our gifts early in life, while others may take longer to find them. Our journey of life is self- discovery, growth, and to give back to society. When we use our gifts, that is when we are happy, content. and a source of empowerment. I love to use my gift of teaching to help others find their gifts and use them and to go after their dreams and goals and to let no one stop them. I encourage others to surround yourself with those that love you and support your dreams. Let the negative voices take a step out of your close circle of friendships, love, and support.
