My name is Candy Bridgers. My life goal is to empower individuals, spread happiness, and live peacefully. People and our differences are fascinating! I love people, diversity, and traveling. I plan to visit all 7 continents, experience different cultures and meet new folks. My favorite movies are Dreamgirls and The five heartbeats, I could sing and watch them all day! My favorite comedians (right now) are Dave Chappelle and Trevor Noah. You can always count on me for uplifting quotes. My words of wisdom for today, come from Dory in Disney’s Finding Nemo, “just keep swimming”.
