Name three words that you describe yourself.
Honest, determined & genuine.
What is your personal motto?
I believe that everything happens for a reason, people change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they are right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself and sometimes good things fall apart so that better things can fall together – Marilyn Monroe.
