About Mary


Hello. My name is Mary Elizabeth. Welcome to MarshMary!

I love great conversations, awesome books, amazing ideas, rocky road ice cream and chocolate chip cookies. I have been writing since I could remember, but I guess it’s just recently that I started calling myself a writer. I have had bajillions (if that’s even a number) of blogs before, but recently, I’ve decided to start a new one, call it MarshMary and try to make it grow for once.

I want to share with you everything I know about in life, my experiences and the questions we ask at some point. Join me on this journey and let us take the world by storm! If you love learning about new things as much as I do, this blog is definitely for you. Stay updated by subscribing to MarshMary’s mailing list HERE.

who is mary

I was born and raised in a beautiful city in the Philippines, Zamboanga. It is one of the few cities here where people speak a dialect similar to Spanish called Chavacano (and yup, we kind of understand Spanish). In March 2011, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree from the Ateneo de Zamboanga University, Philippines, and ended up as a Registered Nurse by August that same year. I fell in love with Nursing then. I loved how fulfilling it felt to take care of patients and help them get better. But eventually, I felt an urge to explore life and see what it has in store for me. That same year, 2011, I moved up north to Subic, Philippines, and got a job as an Online English Instructor. I loved it. I adored the kids, and I loved how I learned from them as much as they have learned from me every single day. The people I worked with were amazing as well. I never had the chance to go out and enjoy while I was still studying in Zamboanga City, and I was simply thrilled to have the time to do those things whilst enjoying my teaching job. Maybe it’s a pattern, but I ended up getting tired of all the fun. I quit my teaching job in May 2014, and as of the moment, I’m taking my time to enjoy the world as much as I can. My dream is for me to able to write a book (or books!) someday, go to Japan, say hi to Hello Kitty and eat some good ol’ sushi.

I re-launched this website (Why?) on September 18, 2014, my 24th birthday. I’m planning to make it grow by encouraging everyone to contribute and interact. I have been struggling to write consistently and be able to share my thoughts, dreams and experiences, and that’s what I am aiming to do now. MarshMary will be a place where new ideas are always welcome!

I can work with you. If you want to collaborate with me, advertise on the site, or assign me a project, please don’t hesitate to send me a message, and we’ll see what I can do for you.
