In honor of Mother’s Day this Sunday I figured who better to feature on this week’s interview other than my own mother! This interview is not enough to show how amazing my mom is. My mom has given me her all. She has taught me everything I know today. She has raised me to become the best woman I can be. She shows me unconditional love and for that, I will be forever grateful. I love you, mom!
