What in your life made you think, “after that life was never the same.”
I lost my mom to an aggressive cancer 5 years ago. That moment has shaken me to the core and shaped how I see life and how I choose to live it.
What do you do when you don't know what to do?
Haha... I go for a run. I am notorious for acting before thinking... so running helps me to not just go with the first thing that comes to mind. Another thing I do is talk to one of my close friends. They are always coming up with interesting, sometimes eye-opening points of view.
What would you do if you had the whole day to yourself?
Read! It’s something I always miss when I’m super busy. Also, go for a long walk in the city and explore all of those places I always promise myself to check out that I never get to.
What is the best thing about being a woman?
Being a mom.
What’s the one piece of clothing you can’t live without?
My black soft leather jacket. I live in it.
