Why continuing an education is so important to her:

Continuing education is so important to me because without knowledge you can't grow. Most people want to achieve great things, but they don't have the proper knowledge to achieve those goals. I pride myself on being a life-long learner, not only does it keep your brain active but keeps you from staying stagnant in life. With education, whether in a Institution or from life experiences you will do great in life and help others.

Tia, what does the term “Golden Women” mean to you?

Golden Women means to me a woman who radiates because of her inner beauty. She may not have it all together, but she seems to be pieced together perfectly because God is within her.

Tia, describe something that is plaguing young women today and explain what can be done to turn it around? What can you do to help?

Young women today are constantly being reminded of how they fall short of this "perfect image" that they see all over social media, television, and even advertisements. Most women battle with insecurity because they don't look like the people on television, but we were all made in God's image. God made us exactly how we needed to be, so to compare is to bring despair on one's self. Through the love of Christ, I help women in Bible Studies find their worth in God not how the world tells them they should look and find absolute peace.
