Who has been impactful in your journey as a mother?
My grandmother and godmother have been very impactful in my journey as a mother. My mother passed when I was 9 and my grandmother and godmother worked together to raise me. My grandmother shared with me a love for family, which I share with my girls daily. My godmother shared with me a love for community, which has birthed my passion for community activism and volunteerism.
What continues to inspire you in your motherhood journey?
My girls continue to inspire me in my motherhood journey. Over the years, I have learned so much from being their mother. As a first-time mom, you always question if you will be good at this, but as time progressed I learned that being a loving and caring mother makes you a great mother.
Share one of your favorite stories from motherhood.
One of my favorite stories from motherhood is when my six-year-old daughter was awarded the Delaware youth volunteerism award. She goes on record as being the youngest to receive this award in our state. This was probably my proudest moment as a mother. I work daily to live my mantra Community Matters, and it does my heart well to see my girls showing love for their community and working to make the world a better place.
