Sororal Fun Fun Facts...
I am one of nine siblings.
I have experienced in my college year, specifically freshman year of getting in the newspaper and on the local news.
When I was in the 6th grade, our end of the year trip was to Washington, DC. I had a 3-piece outfit that included a halter top. Once I got onto the bus I took off the jacket so everyone could see the halter top. My Mom never knew that I kept the jacket off the whole trip. My Mom would have been horrified!
I was president of every House in the Eastern Star in New Jersey.
I like to sing and dance.
I gave the graduation speech as class president in 9th grade.
I was in Girl Scout from 3rd to 12th grade and Service Unit Manager of Camden City Girl Scouts.
I was a full time teacher, pregnant, took two graduate classes in New Jersey and one in Maryland in the same semester.
I have traveled to more than 20 States of the 50 States in the USA and 2 countries out of the USA.
