My hero is “my daughter”. . . because . . .“she survives in a house with 3 little brothers.” The greatest risk I ever took was. “moving to Canada away from most of my family. Though it turned out to be beneficial and rewarding it was the start of an unforgettable and sometimes fearful journey.” A “lesson from mom” that I still live by today is, “it’s important to save for a rainy day.” The best thing anyone has ever said to me is, “I love you my daughter, you’ve made me so proud.” In my spare time I like to “paint and connect with other artists. I also love hosting workshops where I feel I can share views and techniques with others in the community.” I am inspired by anyone who has overcome something intimidating, because success stories are like motivational sticky notes on the mirror.
The one thing that I would like to accomplish at The Journey is, “To make a difference in the world starting with the community that is closest to me. I love the core values of The Journey and I am glad to help perpetuate its mission in any way that I can.“ I work at The Journey because, “I want to work together with my peers and other community members, in an effort to better myself and the community that we live in as a collective”.
