35 Fun Facts You Did Not Know About Me!

In honor of recently celebrating my 35th birthday – which was really 10 weeks ago- I am getting out of my comfort zone to dish out 35 facts you may or may not have known about me.

Here I go!

  1. The definition of Alice means noble and kind. That explains why I admire the finer things in life. I try to be kind most of the time, but my pettiness always gets me in trouble.
  2. I am a fraternal twin, my twin brother’s name is Alex. He is 6’1 and I am 5’5. I secretly which I was his height every time I see him walk in the room.
  3. I can read my twin brother’s mood without him uttering a single word. My point? He can’t lie to me:)
  4. When I was a little girl (probably 4 or 5) I drank a cup of gasoline because I initially thought it was water. Even now, if I’m around leaked gasoline for too long, I get a major headache.
  5. By the time I was 13 years old,  I lived in 3 different countries (Haiti, Bahamas, and the USA).
  6. My second language is Haitian Creole. I can fluently speak, read, and write creole.
  7. I use to be a public speaker in the Bahamas from ages 9-11 and now public speaking scares the heck out of me!
  8. My favorite holiday is Christmas.
  9. I’ve never physically seen or touched snow in my life.
  10. I have a total of 10 siblings.
  11. Growing up I wanted to become a singer (because of Whitney Houston).
  12. I attended preschool in Haiti, so when I moved back to my hometown Nassau I forgot how to speak English and had to re-learn the English language all over again.

  16. I love to laugh!
  17. My hairstyle changes monthly, because I can’t stand looking the same for too long.

  19. I once went to Wet-n- Wild Orlando and almost died drowned because I don’t know how to swim.
  20. My alter ego is a wealthy British woman name Emma. My kids love when I get into character, especially during story time. Lol!
  21. My favorite movies are Love Jones, the Best Man, and 300.
