Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hi, my name is Mercedes, I’m 20 years old and I’m currently studying law. I love art, the beach at night, animals, food and music. I’m extremely passionate about stopping injustice and helping others. I’m always looking for ways to be a better person and becoming more outspoken than I already am.
What Inspires You Every day? : People inspire me. People that are passionate, outspoken and overall badasses.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Pain is inevitable but misery is optional.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal in life is to make a change. I want the voices of the unheard to be heard. I want there to be justice where there is injustice. I’m dedicating my entire life towards it.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : This pandemic was tough but it made me stronger than I was before it. I’ve lost people in the mist of it but I also found myself and my purpose on this earth. It was truly eye opening and for that I am forever grateful.
What is a positive message you would like to give others? : I’d just say, be yourself. Dance when no one is dancing, singing when no one is singing, dance in the rain and see what’s at the end of every rainbow. Live life like there’s no tomorrow because life is short.
