Shelby Mathis

What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Inspired. Realizing the importance of setting a positive example for others is something that motivates me to be my personal best. My mothers battle with breast cancer left me inspired because she displayed courage and strength even on the worst of days. I hope to inspire others through my actions.

What according to you is a true friend?
Moisturize and hydrate..you can never have enough water! Water transports the necessary nutrients and oxygen while removing toxins. So, drink at least 8 eight ounce glasses of water daily to maintain a healthy balance. After all, a healthy body is a confident body!

How do you handle criticism?
I am proud of my ability to communicate effectively with people from all walks of life. From a very early age, my parents instilled in me the importance of being able to talk with a myriad of people. Regardless of the differences people may have, everyone has something to offer.

When was the last time you tried something new?
Sunday is my day of rest. I love spending Sunday afternoons with my family when we can just enjoy the company of one another. I believe it is important to make time for the important things in life and FAMILY is the most important to me!

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
I feel that we make our own luck. If you want good things to happen to you, you need to make good things happen to others. The decision is each of ours. Will we depend upon a legend or create luck ourselves by performing acts of kindness and goodness?
