I would say raising my kids is my biggest accomplishment. I am proud of what they have achieved and the paths that they are on. I really enjoy being around children and being a role model for them. I am really passionate about helping others. I enjoy people and listening to their thoughts and needs. Knowing that I can help others is really a blessing to me. I feel like my purpose is to be here for others. With God’s help, I hope to continue to follow the path that He has placed me on. I have enjoyed working for Victorious Beginnings for the past seven years and will continue to do God's work victoriously.
