It’s how you look at beauty. Is it only an outward appearance with hair and makeup and a hot body, or is it something deeper than that?
I think that we’re all continually searching for who we are, and that’s ever-evolving and changing.
My relaxation has always been my animals – going to the dog park with them, going to the beach.
I like to play women who blaze trails.
Learning how to fly, for me, was so euphoric.
I’m certainly not very book smart, but I started traveling at 16, and it has enriched me in ways I could never begin to explain.
I think about how I’m spending my money, and I like to spend on my family.

I love to travel. I’m a curious person.
I don’t know what I did in this life to deserve all of this. I’m just a girl from a trailer park who had a dream.
I had to fight my whole life to break out of my circumstances. That’s just part of my makeup.
One thing I’ve learned: You never know where life is taking you, but it’s taking you.
Few people know this about me, but I love baking pies.
I don’t think people should have boundaries put on them, by themselves or society or another gender, because it’s our birthright to experience life in whatever way we feel best suits us.
