What is it about what you do that keeps you going? Time spent with family and friends. In the end, that's all that matters. Also, being active and involved in my community.
What inspired you to create meditation affirmation cards? My followers kept asking me for products and so it's really them. I use to be a school teacher and I love teaching and making things easier for people to learn,I created the cards to simplify the process of mindfulness and meditation. It's so beautiful to see people of all ages using them and even parents using them with their kids. They are like no other,
How do you inspire body positivity? I inspire body positivity by embracing my own unique body and the changes that have come throughout the years being on camera from when I started at 30 something to now I am 46 years old. I have shown myself and many forms from gaining weight to losing it to what others deem as not beautiful such as wrinkles, stretch marks, cellulite and more. Miami is a top city for cosmetic surgery and my goal is to get more women loving their natural God created selves and not feeling the need to change.
