My Responses to Fen’s Questions:

 1) What is your goal in life? I have several, but my main goal in life is to spread love wherever I go.  I want to touch the life of every person I meet in some way no matter how small. 

2) What is your favorite memory? There are so many great memories, some of my absolute favorites are childhood memories spent with family, including holiday gatherings and special occasions.  I love being surrounded by family.

3) What is your favorite life lesson?  To trust in timing.  It’s so hard to be patient when you want something in life, but as the years go on, I can see life unfolding like a puzzle, I’ve seen this on more than one occasion.  I truly believe that timing is everything, if it’s meant for you, it will find its way at the right time.

4) What do you want to be remembered as?  Someone who is loyal, trustworthy, and someone that is always there for people.  I truly care so much about helping others.

5) What is your biggest regret?  I don’t really have any regrets because I feel that things happen for a reason.  One thing that I would have liked in my younger years is to not have let shyness stop me from great opportunities.  As an adult, I am very outgoing, yet reserved as well.
