Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: I’m a 20 year old single mother from Las Vegas, NV. I’m currently in school majoring in Early Childhood Education. I aspire to become an elementary school teacher so that I can provide children with effective education in their early stages of life. I want to make an impact on children at an early age so that they have a solid foundation as they grow older & expand their knowledge.
What Inspires You Every day? : One thing that inspires me every day is my son, Zaiden. Zaiden is my first & only born at the moment. He gives me the drive & motivation every day to not only be the best mother I can be but the best version of myself possible as well. I want to succeed so that he can have a bright future and have the drive & motivation to succeed for himself.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: “Move with love & intention”
What this means is to make decisions & live your every day life with love. To have intention for every decision you make is important. When you make decisions with love & pure intentions, nothing can go wrong.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal in life is to be financially & spiritually successful. I want to be financially successful on my own before being financially successful in a relationship because I will not have to rely on anyone to take care of me or my kids financially if anything were ever to happen. I want to be spiritually successful so that I can be more in tune with my emotions & be more self aware.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : The pandemic has impacted me in both negative & positive ways. In a negative aspect, I have gotten too comfortable at home to the point where when I do go out now, I get very anxious. In a positive aspect, I have learned how to be comfortable & happy with my own company.
What is a message you would like to give others? : I want everyone to remember to love themselves & take care of themselves. I know it’s like a cliche thing to say but people hear it so often but don’t do it. Loving yourself includes creating boundaries & sticking to them, taking care of yourself mentally, physically, & emotionally.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I grew up with a very traumatic life but my intent has always remained pure. I don’t let my trauma define the rest of my life & I want the rest of you who are reading this to take that into account. No matter what you go through in life, don’t let it define your future.
