Fun facts:

1. I’m a twin. Yep, it’s true! No, she doesn’t look like me but we do share a birthday. That means I  get to have twice as much cake!!

2. I speak Spanish fluently.

3. I’m the granddaughter of a Nigerian chief, who was also 7’2″. Yeah, that’s really tall. I’m only 5’4″, so not sure what happened there.
