I’m most passionate about protecting the most vulnerable people in our society; our infants.

Who Is Your Hero? Why?

My hero is Oprah Winfrey. Even though Oprah’s life was difficult, she managed to persevere and become successful.

I love the sound of the rain. Listening to rain drops is very soothing and relaxing.

What project would a laptop help you with? Give a short description.

On August, 6, 2015, my 3 1/2 month old baby passed away due to heat exhaustion. I lost everything, including my job. Afterwards, I started a 501(c)3 to spread awareness and teach classes about heat exhaustion, car seat safety and infant loss. I will also write a book to share my experiences on the loss of an infant.

How Would A Laptop Help You?

The laptop would help me with administration and planning for my organization, as well as allow me to create supporting literature and slides for the free classes that I host.

What do you love about this project?

I love the project because it helps those need at no cost. I want to prevent others from what I have gone through and impart to them knowledge to thrive as parents.

What Languages do you speak?

English.

Given a choice, would you prefer a Mac or PC?

Mac.
