About Me: 

I am an Aleut, mother of 4 daughters and really want to make the world a better place for my daughters. I have beautiful dreams and work hard to make them come true. I am shy in person but can write with more meaning. Here is a thing I found that shows some of the Aleut Values:

Aleut Values

* The way of our beginning are our ancestors
* Respect and be aware of the Creator in all living things
* Know your family tree relations and people’s history
* Live with and respect the land, sea and all nature
* Always learn and maintain a balance
* Our Language defines who we are and lets us Communicate with one another

My Passions: 
My 4 daughters, Nature, Woman, Writing, Computer Games
My Challenges: 
Just ended an abusive marriage and standing on my own and giving my daughters their confidence back. We homeschool and love it.
My Vision for the Future: 
Making a difference little by little and bringing a smile to someones face
My Areas of Expertise: 
Not an expert but love computers, writing, homeschooling my daughters, and doing my part to help the world become better.
