Marissa is a very brave and courageous young woman and I am so glad to have her on my blog today.
Her openness warmed my heart and I hope it will with you.
On we go with the questions…
How long have you had diabetes for and had it ever stopped you from doing anything in life?
I have had Diabetes since the age of 4, in April 2018 it will be 20 long years. For me I have tried to not let this illness stop me from doing anything and so far it has yet to stop me.
A song that reminds you of your childhood?
Off the top of my head, the song that immediately comes to my mind is Wannabe by the Spice Girls. My sisters and I were (still are) HUGE fans and most likely always will be.
A song that makes you happy?
The first song that makes me the happiest has to be I Wanna Dance with Somebody by Whitney Houston.
A song that helps you through tough times?
Whenever I’m feeling down I hate to sound extremely corny but my go-to song is Fight Song by Rachel Platten. I love the message it gives and I can relate to it so much.
What famous person do you look up to and why?
I have a few celebs that I obsess over but, the most inspirational celebrity to me is Demi Lovato. She has been so open about her daily struggles and gives us all a reason to keep pushing through because she does with such grace and it’s very inspiring.
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I have always wanted to share my life story. Whether that’s about my diabetes or just daily tips I can give, I love sharing what I have been through and honestly blogging has helped me so much with being more outgoing and I love this community it’s amazing!
