If you could live anywhere in the world where would you go and why? Puerto Rico because my mom lives over there.

 

What inspires you? I want to be a true mother again. I want my kids to come back to me. I want to be the best mother in my life. I wish my grandma was back in my life. I wish my whole family was back together.

 

What are some of your goals? Long-term and/or short-term. Get out of Philadelphia! Get out of the dangerous and welcome to the real world.

 

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why? A monkey! They climb trees and eat bananas.

 

Tell me about the craziest dream you have ever had. Jump off the cliff. It's a sad dream.

 

What is one thing that you want people to know about you? The real me. Who I am, what do I do. How long I've been in Philadelphia and how old I am, the real me.
