Marissa is the designer behind this year’s adorable ROPES logo. She is from Mississauga, Ontario, and studied journalism as an undergrad at Carleton University. She’s a fan of stand-up comedy and has been known to carry around a copy of The End of Mr. Y by Scarlett Thomas, her favourite book. She also played elite level softball back in Canada. Marissa identifies with literary icon Benjamin Button, because her fondness for stitching, cooking/baking, and cats makes her feel like she is aging backwards!
