"Recipe for Success: Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing; and dream while others are wishing."
(Quote by-William A. Ward) Who do you admire most (personally and/or professionally)?
I have great admiration for two very strong and vibrant women. My mother, Theresa Manigault, became a widow when I was seven years old. Although my mother was left with four children to raise alone she was extremely determined to make sure that we were happy and that we had everything that we needed to be successful in life. She was an admirable provider and a powerful motivator. Professionally, I admire businesswomen and entrepreneur Madame C.J. Walker. She was one of the first American women to become a millionaire, and she ran the largest business owned by an African American at the time. She also had great pride, sophistication and flair in spite of the overwhelming odds that she faced. What cartoon character do you most relate to and why?
The cartoon character that I most relate to is Optimus Prime from the 'The Transformers'. Optimus Prime is the leader of the Transformers and works as a powerful force of goodness, courage and wisdom in the battle against the evil Decepticons. He first tries to find peaceful solutions to conflicts, but when battle lines are drawn, he becomes a fierce warrior capable of overpowering vast enemy forces to achieve his goals. I used to watch this cartoon when I was little with my brothers and sister and we loved it!
