As I start my Sincerely Michelle journey, it’s only right you all know a little but about me. I’m very outgoing and enjoy staying busy. I have a passion for helping those around me, giving advice and lightening up the mood.
Q: Why did you start blogging?
A: I never looked into blogging seriously until recently. I usually wrote in journals or diaries. I have multiple on-going journals where I write about many different things. I started blogging last year on a different platform. I really loved it but not the overall theme I had (strictly personal stories). Now I’m here, enjoying every aspect of it. I love being able to write and have other’s enjoy reading it!
Q: How tall are you?
A: “Good things come in small packages” Sometimes I’m 4’11 but on my good days I’m exactly 5′. I can thank my mom for my height, lol.
Q: What’s your favorite food?
A: I love food. Colombian food, all types of pasta, fries, pizza, food, chicken wings, bread, chicken nuggets, burgers, mozzarella sticks and my list probably has no end. I just definitely won’t eat raw fish, mushrooms or liver. I’m currently working on my tolerance for spicy food because it’s pretty much non-existent.
Q: What’s your favorite day of the week?
A: Mondays. I love Mondays, they’re my motivational days. It always feels like a fresh start. Funny twist because I use to dislike Mondays now I look forward to them.
Q: Where was your favorite vacation?
A: Montego Bay, Jamaica was hands down my favorite vacation. My family and I went in May of 2015. It was a beautiful experience, total paradise. I’d love to go back one day.
Q: What was your first job?
A: My first job was a bagger at a super market called Roche Bros. I probably lasted a few weeks. Part of the job was taking the groceries out for the customers, even if they were fully capable of doing it on their own.One cold winter day, I got fed up. I took the groceries out, went to my car & left. Safe to say, I never ever went back.
Q: Where did you grow up?
A: I grew up in Framingham, Massachusetts. A big town which actually just turned into a city not to long ago. It’s a very diverse town. It’s a pretty busy town with a large population. It has 9 elementary schools, 3 middle schools & 3 high schools (not including the catholic schools) so you get the idea of how big my hometown is. I liked my hometown but I knew I didn’t want to live there forever, which is why I moved across country a year ago.
Q: What quotes do you live by?
A: “More smiling, less worrying. More compassion, less judgement. More blessed, less stressed. More love, less hate” -Roy Bennett. This is a daily reminder that motivates me everyday to be the best version of me besides my daily affirmations.
Q: Who are your biggest role models?
A: I couldn’t choose between either of my parents. My parents have been my biggest motivators in life. My mom is a strong, successful and ambitious woman. I admire her for everything she has accomplished and overcame. My dad is a patient, wise and a handy-man. There’s no one in this world that can give me better advice than my dad. I definitely won the lottery with the parents I have.
Q: What are your top three goals?
A: My first goal is to have a successful blog where I can branch off to be a social media influencer and be able to live off my blog. My second goal is to graduate and obtain my bachelor’s. My third goal is to be able to buy a house within the next five years.
