Marisha is a clinician by trade and a writer by purpose. She has found comfort and enjoyment in writing since childhood. She began writing poetry in middle school and continued into adult years. She became a spoken word poet while attending college and began sharing her poetry publically in 2010. A graduate-level alumnus of North Carolina Central University, her educational background, field experiences, observation, life experiences, and walk with God have been the backdrop for writing. Her topics generally include Christian living, hope, loving one’s self, social issues, courage, transparency, honesty, and overall personal growth. Inspired by her personal testimony, Marisha understands the importance of uplifting others, committing one’s self to God, emotional health, balance, and witnessing the transformation that is solely from Him. Her testimonies and desire to help others have been fueled by God’s redemption.
