Name: Mercedes “Mercie” D.

Social Media Handle/Username: @officiallymld

Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hello My Name Is Mercie and I’m 24. I work 2 jobs and recently started college. I have a total of 3 brothers and 4 sisters ranging from the ages of 28-10 months. J did not grow up with any of my siblings on my dad side and on my moms side I was the only child for 10 years so I can say I have an “only child’s personality.” I am very shy until I can trust you and I can say I am a homebody with little to no friends.

What Inspires You Every day? : My mom inspires me to keep pushing. Growing up I never saw her give up. Whatever she wanted she got and that’s how she raised me. I learned that if I want something nobody can do it except for me. I work very hard for the things I want in life and I want my mom to see that she raised a strong independent black women.

What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Live for yourself. It may sound really selfish but in today’s society, everyone is all about getting approval from everyone. I do not wake up wondering who will like my hair or my outfit. I do what I want to make me happy.

What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal in life is to be happy. It’s sounds cliché but to genuinely be happy is my goal. I want to be able to travel without the thoughts of wondering if I will be able to pay my bills on time. I’m not saying that money will cause me to be happy but being able to have a job that’s flexible for me to explore different cultures and enjoy all parts of the world will make me happy.

How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : The pandemic hasn’t been too hard for me considering I am a homebody. I was never laid off because at the start of the pandemic I was working at a gas station which is considered “essential” I feel that if I was one to get laid off my mental health would have caused my depression to spike. I was blessed to stay employed. 

What is a message you would like to give others? : Be yourself and love yourself. Nobody will love you more then you love you and you won’t be able to love anyone if you don’t love you. Treat yourself, take yourself out buy that stuff that you want. Live your life the way you want to and be happy.

What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: This is only the beginning!!!
