Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hey, I’m Catera. Im 23 years old. I’m from South Louisiana. I’m a mom to a precious little boy named Carter. I work with Alzheimer’s/Dementia patients.
What Inspires You Every day? : My 1 year old, Carter. I’m all that he has. I want him to have any & everything he needs and wants. He inspire me to be a better person & to want better for myself & him.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Treat others how you want to be treated. It’s something I lived by since I was a kid actually.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : To find inner peace & happiness.
What are your thoughts on people who seek attention on social media, and what message would you like to give them? : I hate it. I really feel sorry for them. Half of the people on social media is not who they portray to be. It really shouldn’t matter what people think of you. Is their opinion going to pay your bills? Take care of your responsibilities? Feed you? No. You do that for yourself, right? Your opinion of yourself is the thing that matters.
What are your thoughts about people’s behavior from experience, and how would you help them.? : Experiences have a lasting effect on people. It can control their thoughts, emotions, &/or actions which can affect their family & friends, or even strangers. Experiences can cause stress, depression, and trauma also depending if they were good or bad. A way I would help is to identify what effect the experiences had and teach them how to accept what came with the experience in order to start the healing process.
What qualities, traits or lifestyle you live makes you different from others in the world? : I like to think that I am authentic & genuine. I love helping people. I can see and recognize someone’s inner pain/emotions without talking to them. I can tell when someone is hurting. So I try to be kind to anyone I come across. You never know what someone is going through.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I’ve been through a lot but I don’t allow that to stop me. I have dreams and aspirations that I will achieve because they are meant for me to have. I want to be nurse, a mental health advocate, and an Alzheimer’s/Dementia advocate. I used to suffer with depression. I still suffer with it but I have better ways to cope with my depression. I want to help people heal into a better version of themselves. It’s my life’s mission.
