Who do you look up to most, and why?

My role models are the women in my family because they inspire and motivate me to grow without any barriers.  

 

What's your favorite book and why?

My favorite book is The Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah. It was the first book that introduced me to urban fiction. This book was one of those stories that captured my attention and left me wanting to read more. I definitely remember the first time I read the book—I could not put it down. I finished it in two days. 

 

If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? What would you do there?

If I could travel anywhere in the world, it would be Ghana because it's a tropical paradise. Its rich heritage, culture, hospitality, and wildlife/exotic bird life interest me. 

 

What does "paying it forward" mean to you?

What paying it forward means to me is doing something or being there for someone without the expectation of a reward.
