With strong faith in God, she took the road less traveled to climb every mountain and to overcome all crises. Her dream now is to pique the readers’ interests in evaluating their lives and seeking God to aid them to reach for their dreams.
“I see so many young people and adults wondering the streets with no focus for life, bored, no desire or know-how to plan for a career,” states the author. “I learned that God had better plans for me than I had. As I grew in faith and developed a closer relationship to God, my low self-esteem disappeared. I gained confidence in my abilities and achieved more than I ever thought I was capable of.”
