What are your hobbies?

Who is your hero?
‘My mother who raised me without the support of my father. Single mothers perform a heroic feat, and mine inspired me to be a strong woman, independent and a good mother.’

What do you do to get away from it all?
‘I listen to music. Music has this amazing way of transporting you to the place or time you were when you first heard the song.’
