I'm hoping to hire someone who can help me find more ways to be involved in my church, and to help me be more independent at home.

In my free time, I love to journal, listen to music (Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey are my favorite), go to church, and spend time with my friends and family. I look forward to doing some traveling soon to visit my family that I haven’t seen in a while!
