A Salt Lake native, I was the last born to two loving parents of 7 children. It was always fun growing up in a home with so many to look up to, fight with, share with, and learn from. One of the most important things I learned as a child is respect. Respect yourself, respect your parents, respect your siblings & all those you come across. With that, comes love, appreciation & confidence. I never want to be one to put another down, or judge based on differences. I want to encourage others to love themselves and love others because we are all such beautiful human beings. Once we open our hearts and minds, we can learn a great deal from those around us.
