Speaking to her in an interview she has this to say, “One day God chose me not because I had it all but because I could feel it all. A heart that felt so much but yearned to give much. He also gave the people, people like you to hold my hand and support and I am so grateful. As we all strive to win in love by sharing a bit of ourselves, whether it is in the giving of our time, prayers, wealth, food, medicine, inspiration may we do it so heaven will reap. Thank you all for the support and to the amazing people who nominated and selected me, God bless you.
