Who is the most deserving person you know?
For me that is a tough question. I am blessed to be surrounded by some wonderful, caring, giving and self-less people – personally and professionally.
My mother comes to mind. She selflessly gives of her time, talents and resources to others. She is always positive and encouraging.

The ladies of Sigma Beta Xi, Incorporated – a community-based sorority that I belong to – amaze me on a daily basis with their self-less giving, support and spirit of sisterhood.
Another blogging DIVA, Natasha of Houseful of Nicholes who dedicates countless hours to Habitat for Humanity in Chicago and recently completed a trip with Habitat for Humanity to Malawi. She uses her platform to bring awareness and encourage and inspire others with her personal family anecdotes.
