I never stop, I never say something cannot be done.
I love my daughter, I love her furry "brother" Wyn, and I cherish my dear friends who have stood with me through thick and thin.
If you can't cut up and have fun, if you can't laugh at yourself, you don't know how to live.
Everything happens for a reason -- my mom Maria.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I participate in Couchsurfing by surfing. We surfed on and off for 4 months in 2013. It was pretty interesting and pretty incredible.
In life, I participate by making policy changes, locally and nationally. It’s a lot of work but it’s my passion.
I raise my daughter with intention, because I think it is only through raising capable children that we can change the attitudes that will help change the world.
I believe that there are no bad-hearted people, just bad choices.
4 months of surfing in 2013. Wow.
