A quote that sums up Ruby, would be from none other than Maya Angelou. "My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style."
Ruby is always looking for the best shots and points of view to help tell her stories. Her goal is to meet people from all walks of life and reports stories that matter and make a difference in the community.
