Missie Yamamura is currently a freshman nursing major here at Concordia University. Her hobbies consist of free reading in her spare time, partaking in outdoor activities (i.e. hiking; swimming), writing haiku, and handcrafting jewelry. Missie's inspiration for her poem came from her long time family dog, Maxx, who passed away. Fun fact: Although her name (Missie) is regarded as a common nickname, she was given that name as her actual birthname!
