Questions from Enlightenment For Schmucks
1. You as a little kid. What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a pediatrician.
2. When did you discover your passion for the written word?
In elementary I loved writing poetry.
3. Is there anyone who is your inspiration?
My inspiration is my sister. She was sick when I was in high school and I didn’t know if things would get bad, but by God’s grace things got better. Now she is married with 3 kids and has a small business.
4.What is the most powerful moment of your life?
The most powerful moment in my life was when my visa application was denied to go to India. I realized that everything I did to get the means to pay for the trip were not directed by God and I needed to leave school. Once I began to follow his directions I was lead to learn how to give my all to my blog and start freelancing.
5. What piece of advice would you give someone younger than you?
I would say don’t do what everyone expects of you. Ask God to show you your gifts and to give you opportunities to use them. Follow Him and you will be fine no matter what everyone says especially your family.
6. What is your favorite cereal?
I don’t eat cereal.
7. What is your favorite cartoon?
Tom & Jerry
8. Who is your favorite author and why?
Timothy Keller. He explains things very well and in a way that is simple and anyone that was doubtful about the subject at hand will come away feeling enlightened.
9. Who is your favorite musician and why?
She’s not a musician, but I would have to say Jill Scott. She is an amazing songstress and songwriter. Every time she performs a song it’s always different than the last way she performed it.
10. Since there are no limits, what are your dreams and goals?
I hope to grow my blog and transition into a business where I help people see their potential and guide to start their own businesses. I also would love to have a non profit for children that are in the arts and want to be exposed to that world.
