Your favorite quote and why
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Mahatma Gandhi
I believe that we were put on this earth to help others and to take care of our neighbors.
Name something that you are extremely glad you did or accomplished
Met my Brazilian Grandmother. My husband took me to meet her for the first time in 2010 and the missing piece of my heart was found. She was three months shy of her 100th birthday this year and passed away. We were preparing to go visit her this year for that occasion, if I only had one more visit with her. I also met 70 of my 1st and 2nd cousins, which was an amazing experience.
What advice would you give your younger self just starting out on their own
Listen to my mother and her advice. She is a wise woman and everything she told me was true and if you don’t you’re going to have to go to her a lot when you are older and apologize and say, “Yes Ma’am, you told me so.”
