A Conversation with Candi
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I love the Kissimee area and was so proud to represent my hometown of Kissimee, but I know I'll always be a city girl at heart. If I could live anywhere in the world, at least part time, it would be New York City. There is something just so magical about that place.
If you could meet anyone in the world, who would they be?
I would love to meet Oprah. Because I have always wanted to be behind the scenes in media and entertainment, I would love to just sit and talk with her, gleaning her tremendous wisdom.
Who is your role model and why?
For me, Jesus is the ultimate role model. There is no greater joy in life than striving to love like He loved people.
Best advice you've ever been given:
The best advice I have ever been given was to trust God with all my heart and not to try and figure everything out on my own.
Something Interesting about you:
I was an orphan as a baby. I was adopted from an orphanage in Bogota Colombia by two loving parents from New Jersey who forever changed my life.
