What’s something most people don’t know about me?

That my heart lives for service. It all started from being raised in a church where I was involved in the drama ministry to the children’s ministry and more. Leaving Memphis heading off to college, I began to mentor elementary children in the Chattanooga area and found myself serving just as strong for the Hamilton County community focusing on addressing the importance of education. Now, I have returned back to Memphis ready to dig deeper into the city and address other needs to help serve. 

 

What do I like to do for fun?

I love going to amusement parks and riding the most thrilling rides at the park. I have plans to go to Cedar Point because I hear great things about their rides and look forward to making the trip to Ohio soon. 

 

What is your favorite quote from a book, film, or song?

My most favorite quote is by Martin Luther King, Jr. and it states, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
