Marissa: Before Scientology my life seemed direction-less. I knew there were things I wanted to accomplish in life, but I didn't know how to get there or where to start. I was worried. I worried a lot, even at a young age. My brother is an actor and at that time he had already had many successes in acting. I knew that 's also where I wanted to go with my life, but I just couldn't pick myself up and do it. I also wanted to write but I had this idea "I'm just not creative in that area".
