My proudest moments: having children when I lost that hope. Best skills: Being an accomplished artist and poet. Best strengths: Creativity, compassion, growing my Christian faith. My Baptism will be this coming May 17th. Best accomplishment is that my husband lived to see me received my associate degree (majoring in paraeducation) in 2007. I went on to obtain a Bachelor's degree in 2012 (majoring in Business Communication) with believing my Husband watched this from Heaven.
