San Jose, CA (PRWEB) July 27, 2006
Miss 2006 California, Marissa Mecir, a Bay area native, crowned on July 9, announced an invitation to friends and fans to connect with her using the new video Internet service, abazab (http://www.abazab.com).
Marissa, a fan of new technology and social issues, features an exclusive video interview about her goals, interests and platform in her abazab Playbox and encourages video comments back from her friends and fans. She will be competing for the Miss American Women 2006 on August 3rd, 4th, and 5th in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Red Rock Resort and plans to share updates in her Playbox as she prepares for the competition.
An accomplished graduate of San Jose State University with a degree in Psychology and minor in Child Development, Marissa has been participating in beauty pageants since she was 17 years old. While fulfilling her responsibilities and enjoying the opportunities her title has given her, Marissa also manages to find the time to work within the mental health field. Her focus is on helping patients who suffer from schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression and other mentally disabling illnesses.
Additionally, Marissa counsels these patients with life skill strategies, effective medication habits, symptom and response resolution, and supports her patients’ reintegration into mainstream society. Marissa chose to enter the mental health field because it’s “in her blood.” Marissa’s parents are also in social services and have instilled her with a strong passion to “serve the underserved population and be voice to the voiceless.”
With her hectic schedule, Marissa finds that using abazab is an easy way to keep her friends and fans up to date with her life and to take part in her daily experiences. “It’s fun, but most of all, it’s free!” states Marissa in her first abazab video greeting.
Fans and friends can message Marissa through her abazab playbox to send their support, greetings and good luck wishes as she pursues her dream of becoming the next Miss American Women 2006.
