My name is Marissa and I am here to share a little about myself!!! Well first off BIG UPS to Tish for allowing me the opportunity to actually do this!!! It’s greatly appreciated and what you’re doing with the AB community is awesome!!!!
Now, onto me! Well first off I’m 24 years old. I’m a very outgoing person who loves meeting new people and learning new things! I’m a graduate of Norfolk State University with an Associate’s degree in Nursing. I am a Registered Nurse and love every bit of it. I’ve wanted to be an Rn since I was in 9th grade and it’s very surreal that it’s actually happening. It really goes to show once you have really recognized your calling and to walk in it is amazing. I’m actually starting school again in the fall semester for my Bachelors degree in nursing as well. I’m very excited about it!
One new thing that I have decided to do was yes……I’m pretty sure we all get this….DRIVE! I have a permit and now practicing and will be making that trip to The Department of Motor Vehicles very soon. I’m nervous and excited all at once! It’s so weird actually pursuing this journey, I remember the day my eye doc told me I would never be able to and how defeated I felt. But my motivation to do all these things and to really carry them out is Jesus Christ. He has truly shown me that in Him, I am NOT and NEVER will be limited. All that I am and the accomplishments I’ve made are because I threw my fears and doubts to the wind and trusted him totally. There’s Scripture that says “I can do ALL things through Christ that strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13) and I’m really beginning to see just how deep the truth of that passage really goes. God is truly amazing and knowing Him, being saved and the relationship I have with Him is priceless!!! I am what and who I am because of His grace, mercy, and the love He has shown me. Well that’s me in a nut shell, thanks for reading!!!!
