What inspires you the most about Miami? Why do you want to give back to this community? The aesthetics, the weather, the scenery and the diversity in the city. I want to give back because Miami is now home for my family and me. I want to be involved in the community, and I am socially conscious about what is going on in my community.
How has becoming a mother changed your outlook on life? Being a mother is a challenging job, but it is also the most fulfilling position Godcould appoint to a woman. Motherhood has taught me to raise my kids to be kind and socially aware, especially in today’s culture.
What is your philanthropy philosophy? To give with all of your heart and not to expect anything in return.
Biggest lesson 2020 taught you? 2020 has been the year of the reveal. This year has taught me patience, appreciation and helped build a closer bond with my family.
Greatest personal accomplishment? As cliche as it may sound, I am extremely proud that I have developed and am still developing into the woman I aspire to be, which is a God-fearing woman, who is confident, a great wife, a great mother and a successful businesswoman.
Words to live by? Don’t judge a book by its cover.
