Today, I’m especially excited about a new weekly series called Fabulous & Fearless Feature. Every Wednesday, for next eight weeks I will feature one amazing women and share their stories with you. While working on them, I kept running into the living room to tell my friend the surprising things these amazing women were revealing. Reading their answers shows how wonderful these women really are. In the upcoming eight weeks they will share their insights in fashion, careers and their take on some of the issue women are facing today.
Thank you so much to all the incredible women who shared their stories.

First up, the most amazing person I know; my sister and my best friend.  She is one of funniest and more ridiculous people I know; never afraid of a challenge, always willing to offer a helping hand and one person that never says no when offered food. 
Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?
 I am a first year ESL and Physical Education teacher. Volleyball, shopping, and trying new food are some of my favorite hobbies
What advice could you give to someone aspiring to become a teacher?
 Be yourself, everyone else is taken! Don't be afraid to take a chance if you think the students will benefit from it. I know it can be scary to stray away from the tradition, but it is usually worth it! Change is good! I would encourage you to get to know your students beyond the classroom. If you know what their hobbies and interests are outside of the classroom, you can use that information to engage them in your lessons. Lastly, practice what you preach. Students will call you out if you are breaking a rule they are supposed to follow!
Do you stick to conventional fashion or like to try and be original?
As mentioned above, I follow what is trending, but I do like to add a hint of Elvisa to every outfit. Currently, I am loving statement necklaces, but I like to mix and match styles most people wouldn't typically pair together.
What is the best piece of advice anyone has ever given you?
"If it's important to you, you will find a way. If it's not, you will find an excuse" or "Don't make someone a priority if they treat you like an option."

       What do you love most about yourself? 
A question (almost) everyone struggles to answer.. I would have to say my curiosity to get to know people and to  hear their story... and I guess I do like my eyebrow shape ;)
What advice could you give to someone who wants to feel more comfortable and confident in their own skin?
First you must love yourself, before you can love anyone else!  If someone doesn't like the way you look on the outside, then they sure don't deserve to get to know you on the inside, let alone love you!

Thank you for sharing your answers with me and Letters to LA LAland.
