About Marissa Evans

I'm a fourth-year English major, minoring in film studies. I've been writing for The Cord since my first-year and have loved it. Although I don't aspire to be a journalist, the people I've met through The Cord and skills I've picked up here have definitely influenced what I'm going to be doing in the future. Besides the time I spend working on the paper, I write, read, talk about Harry Potter, work out, play soccer, and horseback ride.
