Name: María Mercedes Sebastián
Where do you call home? I’m Ecuadorian, but my parents and I are living right now in Madrid, Spain.
Education/Career: I studied administration and I also have an MBA, but actually I’m not working because working demands a lot of energy that unfortunately I don’t have at the moment. I use my time to prepare my knowledge in other areas like how to be happy and feel near to God. In fact, I’m thinking about studying a new career with something to do with Religious Sciences, I have a couple of options but I don’t decide which one yet.
Who do you live with? I live with my parents, and I’m so thankful for them and me be their daughter because they are the best parents ever always thinking of me, willing to serve and help me.
What’s a typical day for you? A typical day for me is: I wake up like at 8am, then I start the day watching a YouTube video called 10 minutes with Jesus that is about the reading of the day of the Holy Scriptures (I really think that helps me to start my day in a better way). Then my father gives me my breakfast, and when I’m finished with my breakfast, my mother helps me to have a shower. My mom helps me to get dressed and when I’m ready, I exercise like for an hour and a half with my father (because I’m not going to physiotherapy because of the virus). I listen to some music, and like at 2pm my mom calls me to lunch. At 3 pm I start my prayers, (I can’t explain how much peace it gives me I feel that is the moment of the day where I rest). When I finish my prayers, I watch Masterchef Ecuador by YouTube and then some Catholic conversion testimonies and some predications. I eat dinner and finally I read the Scriptures and Catholic Cathesism, at 10pm I brush my teeth, then I say a short prayer and after everything I sleep.
