Who was the role model growing up and how does that influence who you are today?
I never really had a particular role model growing up, I always gravitated towards strong female characters in general- whether in movies, books and older women who I would meet.

To really cherish the person you are and to know that is your super power. We individually are always a work in progress, but once you realize the race is within yourself and not with others, that’s when you can truly and confidently go in any direction you desire.
