JP: You are a dream ambassador. Can you speak to readers who are about to give up on their dreams? EW: Please don't give up. You know that you were created for something. You know it. You might not believe it anymore because you feel like your time has passed, or like you're not adequate or like other people are better than you. But there is only one you and God is counting on you to show up and do what He put you here for. Take one step at a time, but please don't give up. Somebody out there needs what only you can bring to the table. JP: Is there any message in particular that you would like to share with readers? EW: My core message right now is this: no matter how dark it looks right now; no matter how stuck you might be; no matter how much time you have wasted; no matter what the doctor or anyone has said about you. Your story is not over. Flip the page. JP: You are a very busy woman with so many different responsibilities. How do you manage your roles and time and keep them all in balance? EW: It’s a challenge sometimes. I try to find a routine for each stage I’m in. Emphasis on "try" What is your favourite season and why? EW: Any season with blue skies. Lol. JP: What is your favourite color and why? EW: It is … BLUE. Blue is my happy place! It's the color of the sky on a beautiful day, the color of beautiful waters. I love any shade of blue. JP: And finally, what is your favourite dessert and why? EW: Oooh...I have a sweet tooth that I’m praying to overcome. I love cake, especially Italian crème. I love ice cream too. JP: Thank you very much for your time. EW: Thank you so much.
