One motto that I like to live by is “your life is as good as your mindset.” Each and every day, I practice affirmations for myself because this helps em start every morning off with a positive mentality. What you put out into the universe is exactly what you are going to get back, so it’s important to mindfully think about the life you want to live.

 

 

Who is your role model and why?

My mom is my biggest role model. As a great cancer survivor, my mother showed us that even in her darkest days she was able to conquer life with a smile on her face. Her strength & courage is so admirable, that I am beyond blessed to call her my mom.

I am not a picky eater at all, but one food I will absolutely not eat is oysters. Something about the way they look throw me off.

 

What’s something that will always be in fashion, no matter how much time passes? 

Something that I think will always be in fashion is a good pair of jeans and a basic tee. These are such staples in my closet that I wear on a daily!

My favorite place I have ever been to was Tulum. I fell in love & would back in a heartbeat!

What’s the funniest thing that has happened to you recently? 

Legit a few days ago, I was eating dinner with my family at Shake Shack, and I was eating my chicken sandwich with lettuce and pickles on it. This is a key point to remember. Anyways, my family was sitting next to my family friends that I hadn’t met yet, and the only spot left was next to one of the boys from the other family. So I sit next to him and start eating??? Because we are all eating our dinners, and the lettuce and pickles from my sandwich like fall out of sandwich because they were tightly packed and like fall over this boy’s lap??????? Keep in mind that we still haven’t really met yet. He didn’t even acknowledge it and we pretended nothing happened but I was MORTIFIED. I went through the rest of my dinner sitting there trying not to laugh and we never talked about it… but I told my sister and died laughing.
