Quickie Interview: Marissa Yubas

What’s your name and where are you from?

My name is Marissa Yubas and I’m born and raised in New York.

What do you aspire to be or do?

I have a lot of parts to me; I have a master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy, I’m a professional equestrian trainer. I’m an abstract artist starting my own business currently, and I’m working towards being an actress. At the end of the day, I love helping people and pushing myself to do things I never thought I could.

How do you define success?

For me, success is learning and growth; it’s a moment, not the end of something that is achieved once. As long as I am learning and growing, I am successful.

You believe in a higher power?

I do! For me, a HP isn’t a deity, it’s just something bigger and outside of me. Sometimes it’s the greater wisdom of other people (whether I know them personally or not), sometimes it’s in the form of finding guidance from Buddhism, sometimes it’s in the form of nature reminding me to find peace and happiness in the little everyday moments.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

I’ve worked hard to not feel guilty for the things I find enjoyable so I’m going to say none! As long as I’m not hurting myself or others, I’m not going to shame myself for things I enjoy which has a huge and inclusive range.

Who are you jamming right now?

So much! I love Octane, Liquid Metal, and Turbo on SirusXM with a mix of some Christina Aguilera, Josh Groban, and some Bach and other classical artists as well. Pretty much anything from classical masterpieces to some crazy metal!
