Vanessa adores spending time with family and friends and enjoys Sunday dinners and girls’ nights, where chatting and music take center stage. A foodie, Vanessa enjoys trying different types of cuisines and new restaurants. She craves Italian and Caribbean food (her parents are from Martinique), and her favorite place to grab a meal is Awash, an Ethiopian restaurant in Brooklyn. Vanessa also enjoys roller skating and roller blading, sewing and quilting, and taking walks along the boardwalk. The Caribbean is a go-to travel destination, but one day she hopes to visit France, the country that tops her bucket list. Vanessa lives by the words: “A positive mindset brings positive things.” As for fudge, classic chocolate her favorite flavor!
