No Wrong Way to: Love yourself, love your life. No one is perfect and we're all really good at pointing out what we don't like about ourselves but once we learn to look deeper we can see just how beautiful we really are, both inside and out. It took me a long time to figure this out but I found the more I like about myself the better my life gets. I love how I look, I have pretty hair and a great smile. I'm not perfect but I am unique and I know God does not make mistakes. 

What three words best describe you? Friendly, loving and strong.

I feel the most confident when I am: Out with my husband and son, my 2 handsome guys and my world.

Who inspires you? My son. He my biggest inspiration, he inspires me to do better, be better and live a better life. He is kind and caring and he is confident and strong, he's awesome. I loved watching him, as a child he was never insecure or shy if anything he seemed to be one of the popular kids, and even now he can step into any social gathering and it's as if he's known everyone for a while. I was the opposite and it's something I am constantly working on. He has such a big heart even as a kid he was always wanting to help people, one time I had no change I had to turn down someone on the street asking for money he started crying after telling me 'They don't have a home and they need money to buy food'. He's the reason I can't give up on anything he is why I push myself to do better. 

If you could be an animal, what would you be and why? I'd be a dolphin, it's majestic, social, powerful and beautiful.

What song do you currently have on repeat? Prince - I wanna be your lover. I know it's old but it makes me wanna dance every time I hear it.

What’s your favorite season and why? Winter, I love the rain,walking in it and feeling the drops hit my face. I love all the clothes, the sweaters the boots the scarfs. I love to bake cookies, breads, muffins, anything, plus it helps warms up the house.

Do you have a favorite movie? The Breakfast Club, I'm an 80's girl 😉

Anything else you want to include? It took me a long time to figure out how to be happy with my body and my life. I love my life, I recently finished treatments for cancer and I lost about 20 lbs. I look and feel great. I looked at myself while I was getting dressed one day standing in front of the mirror in my bra and undies and thought 'Girl you're looking good '. I have a second chance to live my life to it's fullest. I'm going to try new things and step out of my comfort zone more often. I want to say yes to new challenges to do things I wouldn't even consider before. I am thankful and I feel blessed. I love my life I have an awesome husband and an amazing son. Life is good. Doing this was a great experience, a few years ago I would never have done anything like this. Thank you for letting me be a part of this campaign.
