Q: What is your current state of mind?
A: I’m still excited for 2017 – optimistic and positive. I find that everyone gets excited for the year in January and then as their New Year’s resolutions fade so too does their excitement. My husband and I make a concerted effort to follow through on our resolutions. Every quarter we review them and our progress and make sure that we are on track. This way I stay excited and enthusiastic about fulfilling them year round.
Q: What is your greatest fear?
A: Coming to the end of my life and realizing that I haven’t used all of the talents God has given me. It scares me to think that I may run out of time. However, this year I will be utilizing my artistic skills and my acting skills for the first time since I started my career. This will go a long way towards ensuring that this fear is never realized.
Q: What is the quality you most like in people?
A: Raw honesty. In my industry this characteristic is rare. This type of honesty extends beyond simply speaking your mind. It means being comfortable to show your flaws, laugh out loud and share your life story with those around you. I believe that honesty comes hand in hand with courage and that’s why I admire it.
