Greetings! Salutations! Anybody got a better word? Anyway, I’m Marisol, and I am a college student studying finance in New York City. In spite of the challenges of living in such a bustling hub, I strive to work hard while maintaining a healthy Christian lifestyle. I like to dabble in guitar, photography, and art, particularly oil pastels. I have always tried to foster a positive perspective on life, especially in difficult times. As a Los Angeles native, I like to carry the California sunshine with me throughout my day. Corny, I know. The Golden State of Mind blog is a tool to help you maintain a good headspace as you tackle the challenges of being golden!
