41 – Morristown, NJ

What Are You Most Passionate About?

I am passionate about influencing people’s lives. About teaching Zumba to the less fortunate, and volunteering to help victims of domestic violence.

Who Is Your Hero? Why?

My adoptive mom, Linda. She found me in a home for girls when I was 13, and knew it would be a challenge to raise me. Yet, her love superseded that.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

The quiet sounds of the early morning: chirping birds, gentle winds.

What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?

Marketing (making flyers, stationary) Business (financial spread sheets, planning) Community (writing books, blogging, awareness projects)

Short Description Of Project

(i) My cleaning business: keeping track of clients using Word and Excel, hiring other hard workers. (ii) Writing self-help books for children who’ve witnessed trauma, like domestic violence, and creating awareness within the community.

How Would A Laptop Help You?

It will improve my financial situation. I can grow more than locally, hire people willing to work hard. One day, I can in turn give back to others who have struggled.

I would prefer a Mac, for my graphic design skills, but am also open to a PC. Thank you, in advance, to the Angel who has taken the time to receive my prayer and answer it; many blessings to you and yours.

What Languages do you speak?

English and Spanish
