...and just beginning to find myself. In honor of my 25th birthday, I thought I would share 25 things about me.

1. 25 years ago, on this day, June 15th, I was born in Delmar, Haiti, a suburb of Port au Prince. 

2. I was adopted into an all Caucasian family at the age of 6 months.  I landed at Ellsworth AFB on Christmas Eve 1993. From tropics to foots of snow. 

3. Cold weather and I are not fond of each other. Snow is even less my friend. 

4. I lived in 4 different countries by the time I was four and have visited many many more. 

5. I am a military brat. 

6. I am a third culture kid and I grew up as a missionary kid in the bush of East Africa. 

7. I LOVE JESUS.

8. I have my degree in communication and graphic design.  

9. I an ENFP...extroverted, intuitive, feeling, perceiving...specifically the campaigner type..

10. What did I want to be when I grew up? A farmers wife. Eventually, I wanted to fly planes off air craft carriers and join the FBI as a profiler.  

11. I am a #spoonie, with some major health issues...chronic illness never let you have a normal day. 

12. I got my first camera for my 16th birthday. I started my business six months later.  

13. Blue is my favorite color. Make anything blue, and I will probably buy it. 

14. Giraffes are my favourite animal. There is no beauty, without some different sixes in porportion.  

15. Popcorn, Peanut Butter and Pizza. My staple foods. 

16. I am on a minimalist journey to become zero waste. This includes a capsule wardrobe, so you'll swe me in black a lot of with different pops of color here and there. Just to keep it a little spicy. 

17. Oh yes, I love color. Colors make me happy. They make me smile.  

18. I will choose the beach over mountains any day.  

19. Ironically, I swam on swim team for years...but I am just not fond of water. Especially unexpected water. 

20. I could spend all day in Walmart. Hands down favourite store...I could people watch there all day.  

21. I am going green, eco friendly, all natural and fairtrade. 

22. I am a rape survivor and I am in the process of starting a not for profit for other rape survivors. You can read more about that here: www.noimperfections.squarespace.com

23. I moved to Tampa, Fl in May of 2018.

24. I believe in the power your dreams and chasing your them whole heartedly.
