I think of myself as a very positive, energetic person. I'm most proud that I've accomplished a lot of good things in life. My hope is to continue education and just be a positive role model for me and my family.

I have 5 kids but I have 2 living with me, 7 and 11. My 11-year-old likes to play football and my 7-year-old likes to play basketball. And I'm a grandmother. I have a grandson. He's 2 years old. I'm 43.

I like to read and write, and sometimes I like to listen to music.

I went to school at Sullivan High School. I've worked at jobs including Sam's Club, Albany Care, McDonald's, and Jewel's.

I have lower back pain and the pain is going down the leg. I was doing a homemaker, but my boss told me the economy fell. I try to find a job, but it's still kind of depressing.

Right now, my biggest challenge is me going in and out of court with my daughter. She's fifteen. I have to stay strong and be positive about situations.
