If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? I would rather go back down to South Carolina and, you know,, just be around my family and pull everybody together.

 

What inspires you? The nature in me of helping people, and when I help people it uplifts me because I see somebody else that need help, and by helping them it lifts my spirits up.

 

What are some of your goals? Long-term and/or short-term. Actually, I'm working on getting my GED, going back to school for my medical license. I want to work in the medical field.

 

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why? I would have to say the horse because the horse is fast and strong.

 

Tell me about the craziest dream you have ever had. The time when I was over my sister's house and I was asleep and I took my medication and I starting thinking about having this dream that I was in this place and it was raining down money everywhere, and I just gathered up the money all I could and just started helping out the family that didn't have.

 

What is one thing that you want people to know about you? That I'm a loving and caring person and that, just know that, everybody falls down and need help, and there's not nothing wrong with asking for help. If someone needs help, I'm the type of person, even though I don't have, I can always extend my hand.
