Both my father, Eddie Brown, and my mother, Janet Brown, were born and
raised in Starkville, MS.
For some unknown reason, my parents only decided to have two children. My
younger sister, Crystal Brown, is the love of my life. Although we’ve been said
to be identical in appearance, our personalities are like night and day. Crystal is the risk-taker while I’m more of the
“let’s make a plan” type person. My family plays a very important role in my
being. Their support, love, encouragement, constructive criticism, and a slew
of other things keep me going from day to day. For whatever reason, there are
so many people who have lost their loved ones. I try not to take having family for granted. I
thank God for them on a daily basis.
