What advice would you give to others who wanted embrace their individuality?
The hardest step is actually becoming an "individual", rather than being a follower.. society, family, and friends play a huge part on decisions we make.. whether it be life choices, the religion you choose to follow, what your love interest "should" be… its all influenced and in some situations chosen for you! But… when you can say I'm going to do this particular thing, at this particular moment.. regardless of fear of the unknown result, regardless of judgement from others... to have that courage... you've won the battle and you can go forward knowing that this result happened because of "MY" choice.. good or bad. Thats a victory in my opinion.
What’s your favorite quote?
Something I've been saying for years when I embraced my own individuality that has become my mantra… WAKE UP AND EVOLVE! … people become stagnant and comfortable with their daily routine that they forget to embrace life for what it offers
