Two months ago I had introduced you to
Marquise and told you she had a twin sister, Martinique
I had met the girls last fall and
immediately fell in love with them.
You will read in this interview with
Martinique that one thing she enjoys doing is helping others feel
comfortable in uncomfortable situations. Well, there I was, in
new town, meeting all new people and there she was making me feel so
welcomed. After meeting her, I couldn't possibly feel
She is 16 and a 10th grader in school.
Now I have the privilege of letting you
meet her...Here she is.....
are your hobbies and interests?
M: Dancing, singing, reading and writing poetry.
Is there anything that enjoy that is a bit “different” than
(like: most everyone else likes hip hop and you’d rather
listen to a Beethoven symphony)
I just like to have fun anywhere I am and I like to make
strangers feel comfortable in an uncomfortable situation.
CJ: Who are
your role models? And why?
M: My role model is my mother because she's
everything that I would love to be and more. I just
admire her so much.
makes you a Tao-Girl?
what way are you Tao?
M: There have been many different situations that I
had to face in my life and at some point it was interfering
with all the good in my life and I had to let it go.
In what ways are you
sit back and watch how things are developing, if they are
bad, I make a joke out of it and just laugh it off eventually
its all done
you are amazing - bright, wise and a thoughtful and talented. You
are absolutely the perfect role model for all the Tao-Girls
out there (and even us
"grown-ups"). Thank you for being one terrific
Tao-Girl of the Moment.
