What is your full name, age, career, and in what part of the world do you live?
My name is Marissa Yene Turner, 27, and I own a home for at risk kids. I live in Rancho Cucamonga California.
What are you most passionate about in life and what drives that passion ?
My passion is helping underprivileged youth and giving them hope. What drives me is seeing so many kids not having a family and getting lost in this world. Me being blessed with more than enough I just thought as I got older I wanted to make a career in helping others.
If you had the opportunity to get a message across to a large group of people, what would your message be?
If you can dream it, you can become it. The only limits are the ones you put on yourself.
What do you regret most so far in life?
I don't have regrets. I view everything I have been through as a lesson and it shaped me into the person I am now.
If you had all the money in the world but still had to have some kind of job, what would you choose to do?
I would love to spend my days mentoring youth. Also going into detention centers and speaking to at risk youth.
If you could choose just one thing to change about the world, what would it be?
To stop starvation. Everyone deserves to eat.
What makes you, you?
I never try to be anyone else. I'm not trying to compare myself to anyone or act better. I'm family orientated, genuine and always humble. I just feel like God blesses certain people to be a blessing to someone else, and that's my purpose in this world.
