In life, my three greatest accomplishments to date is: giving birth to Louis my son, he is my miracle and my greatest blessing, graduating with my Bachelor’s Degree in 2016 and converting to Catholicism back in the same year. Also I would like to add moving to Kansas City back in 2017. 2016 was the toughest year mentally, I had to battle through losing my grandfather, anxiety and depression and my ex leaving me. But, I wouldn’t change it for the world. Through these three accomplishments, I thus found my purpose(s) and my mission in life. I want to raise my son, be the best person that he can be. Love him unconditionally, as he does me. He is my first priority. I want help those dealing with addiction, abuse and depression. In knowing that I am not perfect (in that I still deal with the same issues), I want to be a supporter, whom they can go to for advice and resources. I want to motivate them to lead a better life. I am not perfect, I still have my fair share of demons, stuff I deal with and when things go bad, they come out. But I still want to be that voice for those dealing with the same issues and tell them that they aren’t alone.
As for my professional life, I want to keep progressing in food and beverage management no matter what company and/or companies I end up working for. Food and beverage is my passion, after having my son, I realized this. Hotel management isn’t for everyone- I found that out it wasn’t for me. Work shouldn’t stress you out - it should be a place where you can go to destress and work on yourself. I longed to get back into it - the wonderful thing about food and beverage you can never stop learning, you learn something new everyday.
I want to keep digging deeper into my faith and putting my faith into God no matter the situation and how difficult it may be. Making my prayers more intentional - its a daily struggle but a new one at that. I want to be better at budgeting and decrease my debt little by little as possible. Being a single mother is difficult - but I have met my challenge. I have never met a challenge that I haven’t liked. It will be a joy to watch my son grow and to see his personality get out.
