Could not live without: Coffee and Prayer :)
Why she wanted to be part of the Letter Project: As soon as I heard about The Letter Project, I knew that this was the opportunity I had been searching for to be a part of something greater then myself. The world has so many stereotypes of what 'the perfect woman' is, but there is no perfect woman, we are all beautifully flawed.
I love that this is an organization rooted in faith and that it encourages girls and women to be their best selves. The power of positivity is so real!!
