Why are you a Roxi?

I think I am a Roxi because if you were to meet me you would have no clue that my life is made up of so many different componet s. On any given day I am running my business, training for my next race, and whipping up delicious recipes. That really is the definition of a Roxi.

What is your favorite food?

Calamari and pasta is so delicious. I only allow myself to eat like that once in a blue moon.

When did you realize your purpose in life?

Yesterday lol. Really it took me a while. I believe that if you look at your life and the work you have done and activities you have been involved in chances are you have been preparing for your purpose all along. Through prayer and seeking God first, I was able to get that revelation at the right time.

What is your favorite song?

UGK “International Players Anthem” The song embodies soul and hip hop mixed in one. Soul music is my heart from there I listen to anything from Daft Punk to Earth Wind and Fire to Kanye Wes.

What was the hardest thing you have ever had to do?

My great grandmother who had lived with us since I was a child was sick and dying in 2009 and I took care of her for her last two weeks of life up until her last breath. Experiencing death first hand was hard but it made me not so afraid. I was forever changed after that, for the better.

What is your favorite thing to wear?

Gray suede platform pumps they are super sexy and chic

Where do you get your inspiration from?

My biggest inspiration comes from music. When I listen to music alone in my workspace I get so many ideas it is my muse and motivation.

What Legacy do you want to leave?

I want people to know that they can have amazing, loving and fufilling lives and do the things that they have always dreamed of if they just take a risk believe in God and step out on faith. I feel a lot of times people get bogged down in the details of life and forget about their dreams, but it takes small changes every day to change you life. I want my life to be an example of this.
