Her Motto is, “She looks for the good in everyone, because it doesn’t matter how you start out in life. What matters is how you finish your life. Your environment doesn’t determine who you are; you let your environment know who you are. Don’t despise small beginnings. When people say you can’t, “but God” can and will make it happen for you!" One of her favorite sayings is: “When Praises go up, Blessings and the Blesser comes down! God inhabits the praises of his people."
