Marianna

Class of 2015 

 This girl is one of the most mature, wise, and beautiful teenagers I have ever met in my life. From the first day I met her, she inspired me and challenged me by just being herself. Mari is one of those girls who you know is destined for big things. She wants to write and sing and make a difference in this world. She's passionate and ambitious and friends with anyone who will let her in. She is a leader by the very nature of her being. 

Basically, I want to be Marianna when I grow up. 

The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.
— Albert Einstein
Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it... Doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that — that is what life is.
— Amy Poehler
Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.
— Psalm 63:7

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about being a servant and vessel used by Christ to aide those who have been physically, emotionally, and spirituality abused. My heart goes out to people who have experienced detrimental suffering and strive to one day make a difference in the lives of those who have.

I am continually learning that I serve a great and mighty Lord. The simplest form of his very creation is incomprehensible to me. If I struggle grasping the depth of His makings, how am I to understand the maker? He has slowly been bringing me to the realization of how much I depend on him. With a God so majestic and surpassing all my human limits, all I can do is praise him with my words and glorify him with my actions.
