“I first met Marie Abanga through intercontinental blogging. I was intrigued by her willingness to share personal highly emotional information about mental health issues. I was amazed how much she went through, and still capable of offering hope, positivity and love for all those people still suffering and hiding behind the stigma that mental health issues create. She is a powerful person looking to use her personal experiences to help enlighten others find answers to their personal issues. Managing a family as a single mother while achieving a law degree and battling her own "mental demons" shows her dedication and conviction beyond the challenges of simply dealing with mental health issues. I do not know many people with the fortitude and unyielding drive that Marie possesses. Her efforts in the blogging world alone (beyond the multiple books she has also written) will help more lives find answers and balance than she is likely to ever realize. She is a blessing and a gift to humanity. I am very blessed to have crossed paths with Marie and thankful to call her my friend."
