I grew up in a very tiny town called Deshler and attended Patrick Henry High School. I was adopted when I was 12 years old by my grandparents, and that experience I will be forever grateful for. They made me into the person I am today and without their help, knowledge, and love I wouldn’t have the values and work ethic that I do. I have one full sister, a half brother on my dad’s side, as well as had a half brother on my mom’s side. Growing up in a small town instills so many things in you that growing up in a city does not. I would have to say that growing up my favorite food was my Sicilian grandmothers homemade spaghetti. I try to make it now and it is just NEVER the same!!!
