One person I can’t stand is a liar and One thing I can learn to love about him or her is his or her confidence.

What is my most embarrassing memory?

My most embarrassing moment was when I stress -drank alcohol till I blacked out. Glad my bestie came to my rescue…

So beautiful ❤️

One way I am unique from those around me. Why do I appreciate this difference in yourself?

One of the ways I am unique from those around me is that I am blessed with a good memory. I remember most of the things that or around me.
I appreciate this difference because it enables me to bring my friends to the remembrance of the good times and things we promised to work on.

An incident from my childhood that has made a lasting impression on my life.

The Day my biological father told me that I am a beautiful and intelligent girl. These words have built my confidence and helped me stay put in my journey to becoming.

What values do I consider most important in my life? How do my actions align with those values?.

The values that are most important in my life are;

I love to love, keep my word, and keep studying and doing better than I am required while reporting to my seniors to get feedback.
