My Advice to Young Women
Be comfortable in your own skin. Stop trying to be like someone else. Do not be afraid to embrace your own unique attributes and recognize that most of the people who look like they have it all together really do not. If you are not your own unique self, who might the world be missing out on?

How I Balance it All
The three P’s — prayer, planning, and patience. I love making to do lists and truly enjoy the satisfaction that comes from checking off each task. However, I have learned the importance of asking for help when I need it. Pride can equal stress but peace of mind is priceless.
