-Best advice you have ever been given: Don’t EVER Give Up! No matter what life throws at you; you have the POWER to OVERCOME!
-Who is your role model and why?: My role model is my grandmother (Julian Florestal) who is currently 90 years old. I watched her from a young age love on people, pray people out of what they were in and overcome the hardships of living in Haiti and raising 7 children on her own as well as her neighbors children. If that’s not resilience and a great example of perseverance, I don’t know what is!
-Something interesting about you: I am an overcomer of depression. I went through a moment in my life where I didn’t understand how to properly juggle life’s obstacles. I even had a moment where I thought of suicide but I believe GOD intervened and so TODAY and for the rest of my days, I desire to encourage people and women (more specifically) to know that they can withstand anything that life throws at them.
