Q. What 3 adjectives best describe you and why?
Creative- because I love to create beauty around me and I enjoy finding creative ways to spend every day of my life. I especially love to create art, music and poetry.
Determined- because failure is not an option and I am always determined to make my dreams a reality regardless of obstacles.
Strong- because I have accomplished so much in my life even in the face of adversity, and I have pushed through challenging circumstances in which others would have quit. There is nothing I cannot do and I refuse to let anything stop me from achieving my dreams.
