Tell us about yourself and your family:
I am a single mother of a simply gorgeous daughter, Ava Marie. She is two years old and full of life. She gets that from muah… My profession is in radio advertising. I attended the school of Academy of Radio and Television. My mother and father and the Lord are my support system. My goals are being reached daily. I truly celebrate the small successes that will get to me to my large SUCCESS.
What were your biggest concerns when you first found out you were pregnant? How did you handle it?
What the heck am I going to do with a child (i.e. money, daycare, etc.)? To be honest I handled it with again the support of my family and friends. I applied myself like never before in life.
What kinds of things do you do to treat yourself, for fun and to stay relaxed?
I enjoy wine. Lol…. on occasion. I also enjoy cooking, and making sure I stay linked with my few true girlfriends and have dinner and or, go dancing!
What are your favorite things about being a mom?
I enjoy my daughter as a whole. Being a mother is such a gift from God that not every woman gets the chance to experience. The responsibility of taking care of someone else makes me feel good. I enjoy the unconditional love that is experienced.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? If you didn’t have any obstacles, what dream would you pursue?
I see Ava and me in my own home, producing, and hosting my own radio/tv show. Oh, while owning my own catering business.
What advice would you give to other young girls who just found out they’re pregnant or recently became a mom?
There’s no such thing as a perfect parent/person. You will learn patience. Remember it is a virtue.
