People have really been kind towards Marimar since she came out openly about her condition and she feels very blessed for that fact. But there have been many instants when people have gone beyond the limits of bullying her.  Based on her experience of trolling and bullying, she once mentioned:

“People tell me I look like a monkey, that my mouth is wrong. People stare at me; I see them staring,” she said. “When people say negative things to me, I either tell them to stop or just ignore them. But if people are staring at me, I stare right back and refuse to look away until they stop.”

Marimar's family is her biggest support system and her sister and mother adore her dearly. Talking about her strong personality her sister said:

'Personally, she inspires me because it's not easy having the condition she has, everybody looking at you, everybody staring at you and for us as a family, it's been hard to do this together.

Marimar herself is very hopeful towards life and she says that she will never let anything hold her back from doing what she loves. She suffers from a lot of difficulties, as she cannot eat through her mouth she is fed by a pipe through her stomach, she breathes with the help of a hole in her throat and she cannot talk as well hence she uses sign language to communicate in her youtube videos. 

But despite bearing all these difficulties she is:

  • A great makeup artist
  • A Zumba dance teacher
  • An aspiring sing language teacher who wishes to help teach deaf and disable children

 "I hope to get married someday and have a family, have my own beauty line, travel, and teach people around the world about makeup and my life experience."

Marimar Quiroa has achieved almost every goal she set for herself whilst inspiring millions around the globe and we wish she gets a future of her desires as well.

as if you were a rainbow
with gold at both ends.”
