    Crisp: Just Do It


    Crisp. I think that is the impression my name gives and it faithfully represents the truth.


    I've actually never thought of my name's effect on any person before. This assignment made me think about it.


    I needed to ask a couple of people what impression they have on my name before I was able to arrive with my own.


    One said, 'Strong...a boss." and the other said, "Classic."


    I don't actually adhere to an established set of rules or standards. Perhaps of the highest class? A model?


    Nah! Not classic. (cackle)


    Strong? Hmmm...maybe since I have a mannish walk, movement and way of speaking.


    Boss - I'm not. Although some people may think I act like one.


    My name, Veronica, is Latin of the name Berenice, which is Greek.


    'Pheron' (to bring) and 'Nike' (victory).


    Aaaahhh. So now I know why the proprietor of the Nike company chose that name.


    Veronica means "She who brings victory." or "Bearer of victory".


    Yes, I am Veronica. I can say I have triumphed over the struggles and challenges of some feuds and conflict - some of the battles of life. And I will continue to brave and endure the fight.
