What Are You Most Passionate About?

I am passionate about inspiring single moms like myself. Life can feel like an everyday battle that you’re sometimes losing and that’s even more true for moms who don’t have a support system.

Who Is Your Hero? Why?

My mother is my hero. She has had a terrible childhood and worked hard as a young wife and mother to create the life she never had.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

I absolutely LOVE to hear people sing of God’s goodness. Not the average singer, but the ones whose notes start at the pit of their gut and they belt out a cry that stirs up my spirit. When that happens, it’s as if someone has read my mind and is conveying my gratitude and I’m in agreement deep in my soul.

How Would A Laptop Help You?

I would like to write books and I know that a laptop can help keep my thoughts organized and keep me on a schedule. I also want to write columns and short stories for magazines. Most of those submissions are done electronically and in that case a laptop would be of great benefit. Plus I can take my laptop with me to different places and be inspired to write in the moment.

What do you love about this project?

I work for a non profit that does not have many resources but yet we are able to help many people with what we have. We teach young people to become self sufficient through employability and life skills. I love that this project acknowledges that all people do not have the same access to technology and good tools to use that technology. This is the equivalent to teaching a man to read. Once you plant this seed, the tree can only produce good fruit.

What Languages do you speak?

English and some Spanish

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