I think of myself mostly as a confident, strong parent. Even though I know I've made some mistakes, I know when I put my mind to this, I can overcome the past and make a better future.

I've worked at jobs including as a bartender, a waitress, and a lot of restaurants. Now I know I don't want to work anywhere where I'll be serving alcohol. I went to school at Stienmetz Academic.

I'm most proud of my daughter and my ability to keep my values. I live by myself and sometimes with my daughter. Something interesting about me is that I'm pretty quiet, but other people like to talk around me.
