I am known to be the loving, caring, bubbly, friendly, and the “likable” one. The free spirited and speaker of the mind. The life of the party, the crazy and the unreserved one. I am a social person and just need to smell fun anywhere and I will be there.
I am an Event planner, coordinator, Decorator, Hotelier and a caterer but please don’t ask me to cook.
I have always had a passion for fashion and love being infront of the Camera. “How do you like me now?”.
