I have two goals in life, and one of them is to put a smile on someone face every day for the rest of my life. The other is to see every country before I die. Though I love to travel (I've been to 34 countries), I hate to be away from my family—they are my only constant in this life. I work for what I want, which some men can find intimidating. I love to cook for myself, my family, and my friends, but I know my place in my mother's kitchen (which, more often than not, is out of it, especially on high holidays). My friends know I don't sugarcoat anything, and they appreciate my honesty always, even more when it matters most. I would rather have one best friend than many good friends. I find myself more at ease with men than women, so men with insecurities beware.
