Fun fact, I’m a weather junkie! I love learning about the weather and watching storms. One of my favorite inspiring quotes comes from Jeremiah 29:11 “I know the plans I have for you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Through the Newwave Foundation, I’m able to give back. It’s important to look at your surroundings and see who could use your help, because not everyone is comfortable asking for it

Remember when you were in elementary school and your teacher made sure the class knew that there was no such thing as a "dumb" question? Well, it's true. Curiosity may have killed the cat but it is a #lifehack for success. The more you ask, the more you'll learn & the more you'll know. Knowledge is power, so stay curious and continue to find ways to be passionate about education. 📝

Instagram post 2216892773709974446_4858999047 Let’s try something new for the month of January!🤗 How many times a year do you challenge yourself at something you know is a struggle for you? Well this year, we’re going to overcome that challenge - together! 
1. Choose a habit that is hard yet manageable for you to break in school, at work, or in your personal life.
2. Create a cute decorative box or jar 
3. Drop .50 cents in the jar every time you continue this habit
At the end of the month, reflect to see how much change you’ve accumulated and use this as motivation for the next month to continue to improve your educational or social bad habit.
