Tell us a little about you(your background and how was it like)?
I was born and raised in a small town in New Jersey. My childhood consisted of growing up on a farmland with little diversity. Located less than an hour at of New York City, I attended one of the best high school’s in the country and later, attended a university in The Poconos Pennsylvania. I always felt like I was missing something growing up in the mostly white, small town culture. In college, I decided to attend the Disney College Program in Orlando, Florida to broaden my eyes to the world, as well as my career. I graduated college with a degree in hotel, restaurant, tourism management and returned to Orlando, Florida to work for Disney in roles such as front desk, sales, and front desk manager. I managed many different people and experienced different cultures. I know live in South Florida, furthering my outlook on the diverse world around us and my career. I am currently a marketing business analyst for a growing health club.
What are the bad things you see on social media?
People tend to want to voice their opinions, but then get mad that others do the same. If someone does not agree with them, it turns into a nasty argument instead of an engaging, eye-opening conversation.
What are the hardships you go through?
I have lymes disease and struggle with bad circulation and memory loss. I also have hypoglycemia which has taught me that healthy eating can really make a difference on your health. I came from an abusive family, both mentally and physically, which had taught me to take control over my emotions and find other ways to solve differences.
What are your goals in life?
I would like to become a marketing director of a luxury hotel and/or own a coffee business. Eventually, I would also like to become a professor.
What would you do if you could change the world?
Make people understand each other more. If more people had open perspectives, even if it wasn’t their personal belief, I believe a lot of hardships and struggles can be avoided. If it doesn’t hurt you, the people you love, or strangers, you should not worry about what other people are doing. Focus on the happiness of yourself and the people around you that you care most about.
Are you happy in the position you are now in life?
Yes. I believe I am very self aware, successful, mature, and open minded of my age. Though I still have a lot to work on, my biggest focus right now is boosting my self confidence.
What questions would you like me to make next for the new interviees coming to the website?
If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would it be and why?
