Favorite thing about being southern: I love my accent. People hear it and either love it or underestimate it. I feel sorry for the people that underestimate it.

What is your personal life motto: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
― Maya Angelou

What is the most challenging professional obstacle you have had: This time last year I worked in a toxic work environment that I hated. I prayed and worked out to get me through it. I’m happy to say that I made it. God made a way for me out of no way. I’m working in a healthy work environment and it doesn’t heart that I’m at one of my dream TV stations.

Who is your favorite character a “Different World”: Without a doubt Whitley Gilbert

Who do you wish you could meet? I wish I could meet Wendy Williams and Oprah Winfrey and in that order.

What would your best friend say is the best/most annoying quality about yourself? My best friend loves the fact that I am very accepting. My most annoying quality is that I am always busy.

What advice would you give your younger college self? Everyone is not your friend.
