About Your Instructor
Ciao! My name is Marisa Parker. I decided to write my family’s story, I did so as a legacy for my kinfolk. It all started with my mother reminiscing and me jotting down her experiences. That was in 2012, and after four years of writing, I realised I wanted it to be more than that..
