“SACRIFICE + PRAYER = SUCCESS’’
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.

There are many challenges that I may conquer to pass every inch of the journey my life will takes.
There are many people who doesn’t believe that I can do all the things I want to do.

“My motto inspires me to define what success is. As a teenager, a success is having all the sacrifices in my studies and strengthening my faith to face all the obstacles that may come on my journey. In short, sacrifice + prayer = SUCCESS.”
