My name is Daisy Melissa. I grew up in an immigrant Mexican family. My parents taught me to pray and enrolled me in Catholic school from 3rd to 12th grade. My heart always wanted God, but I felt so guilty and dirty from sin. Apparently, despite all odds, God wants me, too. I know this because He sent his only Son Jesus to save the world. Jesus died on a cross and paid for all my sins. He is risen from the dead and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
I started writing when I was in the third grade. My friends and I wrote mystery novels . We even sent a letter to publishers, but our work was rejected with a polite “thank you”. I wrote a lot through my grade school and high school years and declared a creative writing major my first semester in college. Shortly afterwards I became a Christian. I almost gave up on writing, because I realized how hard it is to glorify God and be honest about the brokenness of this world. Before I quit, God showed me that these two are not necessarily opposites. In His grace, I write.
Recently I graduated from a small liberal arts college in Michigan. I studied Creative Writing and Japanese. My favorite color is yellow and I love to eat cactus. In my spare time, I like to play with clay in the Ceramics studio. Now that I’ve graduated, I hope to pursue a career as a writer, creating with words just like my Father.
