Marquesia's Story

  MY NAME IS MARQUESIA LAVETTE BAKER, I WAS BORN NOV.3, 1999. I AM 4'10 AND 120pds. I HAVE THIS HUGE DESIRE TO BECOME A SOCIAL WORKER FOR KIDS. WHICH I AM CURRENTLY TAKING CLASSES AT TEXAS SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY TO ACCOMPLISH MY GOALS. I AM A FIRST GENERATION COLLEGE STUDENT EMBARKING ON MY SOPHOMORE YEAR.
  MY CURRENT SITUATION IS THAT I JUST CAN'T AFFORD TO PAY THE FULL TUITION. MY SITUATION IS'T DEFFERENT FROM ANY ONE ELSE HONESTLY, LIKE OTHERS THAT HAVE DREAMS TO SUCCEED AND MAKE LIVING A  BETTER PLACE  FOR OTHERS HELP IS SOMETIMES NEEDED AND WE ALL WOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR THE ASSITANCE. I PLAN ON PAYING IT FORWARD BY CONTINUING MY STUDIES TO BECOME THE BEST SOCIAL WORKER I CAN BE SO THAT OUR FUTURE GENERATION CAN BE SAFE AND BE ABLE TO ONE DAY LIVE OUT THEIR FUTURE DREAMS.

My Q&A

Are you religious? Talk about your faith and its importance in your life.

YES, I AM RELIGIOUS. MY GREAT GREAT GRAND FATHER WAS A PASTOR, I HAVE NUMBEROUS UNCLES AND COUSINS THAT ARE PASTORS AND PREACHERS. I HAVE BEEN IN CHURCH ALL MY LIFE. I WAS TAUGHT TO ALWAYS PUT CHRIST FIRST AND HE WILL DIRECT MY PATH. ITS BY THE GRACE OF GOD THAT I AM HERE PURSING MY DREAMS.
