Bear Facts

Marissa Drake
This is Marissa's first year on staff and second year in the journalism program. As a sophomore, Marissa likes to take long walks to the fridge and spends most of her time inside of her house waiting for the apocalypse. In all seriousness, Marissa is varsity cheerleader who tends to spend more time watching Caillou or Paw Patrol than actually going out and making friends. She likes to deal memes (at a discounted price of 20$) and has a fear of the dark. She cant wait to spend the rest of the year reciting vines and making an even bigger embarrassment of herself.
