'True Life' Check-In: Are Wedding Bells In Carissa's Future?

Today's "True Life" explored the stories of two young people who were doing everything they could to escape poverty. We had an opportunity to check in with them and find out how their lives have changed since filming wrapped. Take a look at the follow-up Q&As below.


How is your relationship with Justin? Do you think you will get engaged soon?

My relationship with Justin has never been stronger. We just had our 2-year anniversary this past December, and we are happier than ever! I hope to get engaged to him soon--if the time is right for us to take the next step. I almost miss the insanity of wedding planning. When I do finally get engaged, Casey will definitely be my maid of honor. :)

What was it like sharing your story with us?

Doing "True Life" was an amazing experience for me and my family. We were able to be ourselves for everyone to see. Through all the drama of the wedding, and the wedding planning, we remained a strong, very close family. This experience helped me appreciate the people in my life. It helped me evaluate the things within myself that I can work on to be happier and make everyone I love happy as well!


How is your friendship with Shakeena?

My friendship with Shakeena is back to normal after I called her to apologize.

What was it like sharing your story with us?

When "True Life" first started, we did it to create something positive, but it turned out to be a lot of fun, too. I’m happy I was able to share our story with the world, and make the world laugh. I hope this won’t be the last the everyone sees of us!
