Hello! My name is Marissa, and I am currently slated to graduate from Cornell in December '22. Originally from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, I love warmth, summertime, and all things ocean. In Fall of 2018, I moved to Ithaca, New York to start studying Environmental Economics and Sustainable Business through the Environment and Sustainability major in Cornell's College of Arts and Sciences. Just before the 2020-2021 academic year, I moved to Aotearoa New Zealand, where I took a year off of school (...and COVID) to work and travel through the beautiful country. Upon returning to the USA, I have taken a strong academic interest in sustainable consumer behavior, increased producer responsibility practices, sustainable fashion, and waste management strategies. Outside of VOIZ, classes, and work, you can find me jamming on a piano or cooking up some healthy new invention! I am so thankful to have found VOIZ along with the group of intelligent, persistent, like-minded students who join me on the journey to a more promising future!
