2.       What inspired you to work with kids?

                I’ve always been the kind of person that never wanted a desk job. I like that they keep me on my feet. It is the best feeling in the world to see the difference you are making in a child’s life. Working in special education has shown me that every child is unique in their own way, and I love bringing out the best qualities about them.

3.       If you were a flower, what flower would you be?

                Sunflower. They have always been my favorite. They are so unique from any other flower and they are beautiful. 

4.       What is your favorite creative outlet?

                I have been really into developing my  green thumb. I love taking care of plants and having them in my household. But lately, I have been really into knitting, learning to crochet, and making candles with my boyfriend.  (He secretly likes it more than I do.) I’ve also brought my sewing machine out from the closet and have been working on Christmas presents.

5.       Where do you hope to see yourself in 5 years?

                Hopefully I will be working on my masters and certification for Applied Behavioral Analysis.  Also, I want to be living in another state. Colorado is where I would love to be.

6.       Describe yourself in 5 words, go!

                Elegant, Caring, Warm, Funny (derpy according to my boyfriend), Introvert

7.       What is your favorite part about IG?

                It gives people a chance to express themselves without using words. I have never been an excellent writer so it is a way for me to be creative and share my life with others through my vision of it.

8.       What inspires you?

                The people I surround myself around. Whether it be my family, my boyfriend, friends, or even the children I work with. They all inspire me to become the person I want to be. Also, I have always been inspired by nature as corny as that sounds. Ever since I was a kid I have been fascinated by the different colors the sky can become, the trees changing colors, and the many varieties of plants that we are surrounded by.

9.       What’s your favorite part about this time of year?

                The atmosphere. The colors, the weather, the scents, the holidays – it is the time of year to be thankful for the life we have been given. 

go follow her right meow @bmcline ! thank you for being apart of feel & flourish, brit!
