As outgoing and vivacious as she was, Jennifer also had a more quiet and introspective side. She was very artistic and expressed herself through beautiful paintings. Her imagination and creativity were inspiring.

The greatest lesson I learned from all that I have been through, is that life is something we should not take for granted, and that each day we are in state of wellness to get up and make an impact in someone’s life, it is important that we do so.

Growing up, I had a very normal life; a loving family, plenty of friends, and I was quite active in my school, and the community.

You know those bucket lists that people always talk about- I never had a list and I have no empty buckets. I’ve done all I wanted to do, and I have no regrets.

LIFE is always the strongest; I am a living proof that everything is possible. No matter what, keep fighting and never surrender. Of course, there will be up and downs but in the end what matters the most is to KEEP HOPE!!!
