This is my friend, Marsali Laryn, but we call her Mara, she is Mayan Indian from a small village in Honduras, she shares her birthday with her great-grandpa Lyle Roberts which is June 14th, 1908. LOL!! Marsali loves her older sister Vienna who has been in Honduras for the last five years.
She love purple, her sweet cat Rascal and flamingos. She saw her first live flamingo in 2007 when she was on the Caribbean island of Grand Turk, but it did not eat salt water food so it was white. Then in 2012 when she went to Bermuda she saw real live pink flamingos, they were eating the pink salt water animals and were beautiful. She has many flamingo stuffies on her bed.
Mara loves to dress up, spend time playing her piano and violin, go shopping or traveling. She loves to ice-skate, and dance. Mara does ballet, jazz, tap and lyrical dancing. Her all time favorite adventure is traveling. Especially on Holland America cruise ships, her favorite ship is the Westerdam. Mara and her Mama have been all over the world together. Mara and her big sister Vienna are quite close and they enjoy being together. Vienna has been in Honduras working as a missionary the last five years.
Mara is torn as to what she wants to be when she grows up, her mama says that she has time to decide what she really wants to do. It is ok to change her mind often. Right now, either a concert pianist, or violinist would be fun, a professional cruise consultant for Holland America like Diane, a dancer in theater or movies, or a volunteer for a crisis and abuse hotline. Those are the things that she switches between all the time. Being a professional traveler would be the best. LOL!!
