Entering her third year writing for TRL, junior Marisa Green is excited to get back into the newsroom. Outside of TRL, Green spends most of her time in the art room, binge watching netflix, running or getting boba with friends. Green loves to read and is always open to hearing new book recommendations. She is a huge dog lover and loves to talk about her dogs, Lulu and Mozart, who take up 90% of her camera roll. Green can’t wait to see what her next year on TRL will have to offer.
