How Were You Feeling During Your Pageantry ( i.e Your Reaction)
On stage, my voice would tremble and I’d feel like I was going to vomit. I wanted to run, but the spotlight was on me, so all I could do is stand there and shake and smile. Eventually, it became my norm to go on stage and speak to hundreds of people, but I had to break through the discomfort to get to that place.

What Is Your Biggest Disappointment And How Did You Bounce Back From It
I don’t have any disappointment because We all have moments where we feel like everything is moving too fast or where we feel frozen in time from fear or pressure, but ‘knowing’ that I am bigger than any circumstance if I choose to be – I find comfort and empowerment in those three words. And, they keep me grounded and moving forward.
For those who are aspiring to be like you, what advice do you have for them
My advice for those aspiring to be like me is Fail fast. If you don’t fail every once in a while, you are never going to find your true potential. You need to be confident enough to try everything and not be embarrassed if it does not work. and they should not be afraid to try new things, go out of your comfort zone and make a difference… Be yourself! Be Optimistic!
