What's something on your bucket list? 

I would like to travel to Africa. 

What actor would you cast to play yourself in a movie about yourself and why? 

I asked my husband this question because I couldn't decide, and he said Kerry Washington. I asked why her, and he said you both cry ugly (LOL). I thought about Kerry Washington, but not for that reason. I love how she embodies every role. 

What's your favorite place you've traveled to and why?  

I don’t have a favorite place, but going to Shanghai and South Korea was amazing. 

Favorite family tradition: 

Decorating the house for Christmas. It is an entire process for my family. We go all out.  

What is your proudest accomplishment? 

Graduating from college was my proudest accomplishment. This may not be the case for some, but it was so important to me. At the young age of 19, I became guardian over my 12-year-old sister due to the passing of our father. College was placed on the back burner for many years. I finally finished at 30 while working full-time and caring for a nine-year-old. It was difficult, but I completed my bachelor's degree and received my master's a few years later. 

What did you want to be when you were small?  

When I was young, I wanted to be a lawyer.  

What is your latest book recommendation? 

“Own Your Space: A Women's Guide to Polish, Poise & Empowerment” by Nadia Bilchik & Lori Milner. 

Your life story in one sentence: 

Life will knock you down, but we choose what will happen next. 

My favorite restaurant in Atlanta:  

Mary Mac's Tea Room 

My favorite comfort food or family recipe:  

Homemade chili
