She was raised through stories; her parents had a knack for describing events and explaining circumstances through storytelling. Known as a cheerleader amongst close friends, Fortune derives joy from seeing others thrive. Her personal journey and experiences have contributed to how she views the world:
Our differences make us whole, and they must be celebrated.
Fulfilled individuals build up thriving communities.
Great encounters are often found in the least likely, the weak and those who seem as if they've got nothing to give. It takes unconditional love to unlock the secret.
