Biggest inspiration:

My biggest inspiration is my mother. She has taught me that being a caring and emotional person is never a bad thing. Humility and kindness to others should come from the heart. She’s always taught me to go after my dreams and never give up no matter how hard I fell she was always there. She is my biggest supporter and I could never pay her back for all that she’s done for me. I am so greatful for such a strong female role model in my life.

Worst nightmare:

Spiders. Spiders anywhere near me.
