About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Defeating my dad in most countries visited

ABOUT ME

My name is pronounced Ma-rye-ka... yes it's dutch but my mom took the "j" out and americanized it... and no I can't pronounce it correctly

Past mispronunciations of my name:
Mary-jee-kee
Ma-ree-ka
More-cha-ka
Ma-rike

I'm just going to say that there is no true pronunciation of my name

PHILOSOPHY

"Work like you don't need money,
Love like you've never been hurt,
And dance like no one's watching."
