I've gotten the pleasure to live with this dreamer for the past year. Carissa is a gem. She has the most gentle presence and cares deeply for her friends and family.
She dreams to end injustices, and to see people filled with hope. While in Waco, Carissa was an ambassador for the coolest jewelry company: Noonday. The company helps create business opportunities for women in the developing world. And In a few weeks Carissa is moving to Manila, the capital of the Philippines! For a year she will be living in Manila and interning with International Justice Mission. I'm inspired by Carissa's courage and her desire to follow God.
