What hurts you most in this world? I feel most hurt in the world involve the lack of love for the human race. If we loved ourselves as humans, we wouldn’t hurt each other. We would look at each other as one united family. Children that are disabled would receive the help needed to make their life a little easier. There would be no ethnic or gender divides. There would be no hunger or housing issues and so much more. Loving each other can fix any problem and it’s free, only if all humans could tap into it.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced? How did you overcome it? The biggest challenge I have faced was bringing up my three disabled children with very limited resources. Everything they needed cost more than what I had so I had to find ways to make sure they had what they needed. I overcame it by never giving up and being encouraged by my children.
What is your favorite genre and why? My favorite genre is a mixed between erotic and horror.
