1. What do you most want to be remembered for?
being a good person....helping others
picking up starfish
being an awesome mother, friend and confidant

2. What quotation best fits your outlook on life?
In a real sense all life is inter-related.
All persons are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.
Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.
I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be.
This is the inter-related structure of reality.
~Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

3. What single achievement are you most proud of in the past year?
probably my work at the center and buying a home

raising my son and my work in india

5. If you were asked to give a child a single piece of advice to guide them through life, what would you say?
have compassion and be true to yourself. rise above what others expect of you.
the children with whom i work live in a project. i ask them to look around them.....do they want to live here and raise their children here too? they always say no....but many of them say they will not live long enough to have kids because "people don't live long up in here." what will it take to get out of here and how can we do it?
