“My mother grew up in the inner city, and she didn’t have much. She has always emphasized the importance of getting a degree so that we wouldn’t struggle like her growing up. She’s taught me not to stop until you get it, until you make it. She works so hard trying to pay term bills, taking care of my sisters, my brother and my niece. And she’s always been the type of person to work extra hours so that she can get us what we need. On my behalf, I want to work just as hard, I want to get that degree, and I want to become a physician assistant to help others. But my mother has always inspired me, so I want to do it for her too, and make her proud.”

(2/2) "My favorite card is the Wheel of Fortune card. It’s the card that signifies that everything's changing, and that everything comes full-circle in life. I think it was the first card I ever pulled too, so it's very special. For me, it symbolizes that no matter what problem I'm going through; and I've gone through dark times; the light will always come out, and I'll always be ok. But each card can represent something different for each person that pulls it. Tarot cards are very versatile. And that’s why I choose this method over anything else. People can read tea leaves, palms. But I find that cards always changing because people are always changing.”

(1/2) “When I was a child, my grandfather passed away and I’ve had many people in my life pass away ever since. Each time, all of these strange things started happening to me where I was getting visitations. It’s when you know that someone who has passed away has come back to visit you. It was comforting for me. And after doing research, I found that tarot cards are a way to reach that other side. It takes years and years of practice and experience to ever get there, but my plan is to develop my practice and strengthen my intuition so deeply that I can help people one day by becoming a medium. For now, I like to help people with more basic tarot card readings. Sometimes people have a mental block and they just need that push.”
