Hi, I’m Marissa
A daughter. A sister. A friend. A student. A Division I athlete. An aspiring Ob/gyn. An experimental chef/ baker. A shopaholic. An ice cream enthusiast. A lover of people...oh and A POWERFUL BLACK WOMAN.
The extent of my story is so much deeper than the color of my skin. But as a black woman, the multi-dimension of my being is always being limited. I am always being put in a box and told just how far I am allowed to reach. My limits are constantly being predetermined before I have even opened my mouth or walked into a room. But I refuse to be limited. My voice is too powerful and my being is too complex to be limited. I am a black woman and I am limitless. We are limitless. I want to show the world MyManyShades and the many shades of all black women through the amplification of the many voices that inspire and motivate me along this beautiful journey of life.
"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."
― Maya Angelou
