Tell us about yourself in 50 words or less. We want to know one or two things that you'd want someone to know about you?

I am creative, soulful, and exuberant. I am most concern with being the most authentic version of me while also empowering the women around me.

What are you most grateful for in life?

I am grateful for all the adventures I get to embark on. I am grateful for the people who I meet along the way.

Who do you find beautiful – and what makes them beautiful to you?

I think women who takes risks and are willing to be vulnerable are the most beautiful. Whenever, I encounter a woman like that I can sense it and shines through.

Was there ever a time that you felt ugly? What happened and how did you react?

I started to feel ugly when I was very young. I was always taller, heavier, and darker than all the other little girls. I was also somewhat unruly and unkempt and always wanting to get my hands dirty. There was a lot of painful teasing that would leave me in tears.  

Based on the time above, when did you realize that you were beautiful?

After college, I started to feel a lot more comfortable in my skin. I think feeling beautiful has been a journey of many layers. I still have rough days but definitely gets better as I get older

What makes you beautiful?

My courage makes me beautiful. I have learned to create my way out of some difficult times. Somewhere a long the way, I have developed a resilience that is magic.

How has your idea of beauty changed over the years?

First, I admired and aspired to the norms that I saw perpetuated by glossy magazines. Now, I know that beauty is everywhere I look.

If you could go back in time and give your younger self one piece of advice, what would it be?

If I could go back in time I would tell myself to infuse my life with laughter.
