Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: I am a 25 yr old bookworm and pre-k teacher who spends every waking moment thinking about her students, what I will read next and almost nothing else

What Inspires You Every day? : First of all, God wakes me up every morning and I am and will always be eternally grateful for it. I will never take that for granted.

However, on the human spectrum, just last year I came across two amazing people, Lilly Singh and Humble the Poet. They are both YouTube influencers, authors and just all around Bawse humans. Watching their stories and how they put in the work to become who they are literally inspires me everyday to want to work harder and become a better person.

What is some words of wisdom you live by?: I have recently learned that happiness is what is most important to me, no matter the cost. I am also a huge fan of inspirational quotes. So there are quite a few.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” ~ Philippians 4:13
“Happiness is the only thing worth fighting for in your life” ~ Lilly Singh
“If you can’t beat the fear, do it scared.” ~ Glennon Doyle
“No one needs to have everything figured out and honestly nobody really does.” ~ Humble the Poet

What is your ultimate goal in life? : The ultimate goal in my life is to be totally and completely happy and have fun doing it. If I can wake up every morning and smile no matter my circumstances, I’ve accomplished my goal.

How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : My pandemic experience has actually been the opposite of a lot of people. It started out rough but overall it’s been very good for me. It’s given me time to reflect on who I am and who I want to become. As I mentioned before I found two people who have helped me with that journey and it’s made me very happy. I’m learning new things and becoming who I really am.

What is a message you would like to give others? : Whatever it is that makes you genuinely happy, do it. Don’t let other people live your life for you. Don’t let their opinions deter you from where you want to be in life. Your only limit is you and you can only please one person per day. Let that person be you. (These are things that I am still learning myself so I am also talking to me when I say this)

Find people that inspire you and have goals that align with yours in someway or another. These people don’t have to be in the public eye. It can be people that you are friends with or someone you came across on social media that you vibe with. Let those stories inspire yours.

What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I’ve recently understood that age means absolutely nothing and no matter how old I get I can always learn something or accomplish a goal. I am no longer allowing other people to tell me to work faster or that I’m wasting my time.
