What Inspires You Every day? : My mum is my biggest inspiration. She was diagnosed at a very young age with a chronic illness. This could’ve caused her to just give up, but she keeps pushing every day. She had 8 kids. She’s relearnt to walk. She’s in constant pain and still continued to have a smile on her face every day!

What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal is to be a good person. To make a difference in people’s lives. Help people to smile and know that someone is there and cares for them. I can’t change the whole world. But I can do my best to change someone’s outlook on the world.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : When this all started I was laid off for two months. At the beginning it was alright spent a lot of time with my family. But as it’s continued on and gyms have shutdown I’ve seen myself start to shut down. The gym is where I take care of myself mentally and it’s hard to push yourself to put in the work at home. So I’ve had to find new hobbies and interests and things to keep me busy. Recently I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts and learning to play guitar!
What is a positive message you would like to give others? : I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you John 14:18
If we look for God in all things we will be blessed even in the darkest days.
