“I am constantly learning… Understanding that as I move with intention, each situation be it a curveball or a goal must lead me to happiness… And I am in love with who I am becoming.”

“…When you give a woman a task, she thinks of how she can be the best at the job and also the best version of herself, so that you can come back and work with her.”

“Shine that little light of yours, spread joy, dance a little or a lot… It releases bad energy.”

“I’m just exploring my many sides and loving myself in the process… I’m Omawonder.”
