Growing up, I remember my whole family (extended & immediate) would get together every weekend – just because. There was many times where I would walk into a room with a bunch of adults discussing something over a cup of coffee or get really loud during a soccer game. The soccer games would be the worst. Everyone was rooting for someone different & it would get crazy. I would ask my mom, "Why are they fighting over a game?" My mom would laugh & say, "It seems like they're fighting but they're just really passionate."

For some, a passion can be a sport, for others it can be art. For me, it's my family, photography, and writing. I don't think I have to elaborate on why I'm passionate about my family. They're my entire world. I'm a daughter, sister, wife & mother to the most amazing people who I would protect & do anything for.


Pursuing my passions


In addition to being a daughter, sister, wife, & mother, I'm also a blogger – thanks to my passion of writing. In person, I'm a fairly quiet person & like to think before I speak. Sometimes I get put on the spot & I respond & am later kicking myself wondering what gibberish just came out of my mouth – which is why I like to write. Ever since I was little, I remember others hating having to write short stories or papers but I was always ecstatic! Writing is my therapy – where I get to express everything I always want to say but can't really express out-loud. It just flows better on paper for some reason.

Another passion of mine? Photography. I would beg my mom to buy me disposable cameras ever since a young age & I would take a picture of anything & everything – way before everyone suddenly became online photographers, lol. Taking pictures of the same thing over & over can quickly get boring, which is why I need to travel sometimes for a change in scenery. In order to travel, I need a car that I can depend on that won't leave me stranded on the side of the road or that I have to fill up every couple of miles. A car like the 2014 Versa Note, which offers best-in-class MPG and interior/cargo space for an excellent price would be perfect to help me travel & continue to pursue my passion of photography. Nissan believes the 2014 Nissan Versa is the ‘door to more passions' & they want to know what your passion is!
