Marie ’21 has been told by a professor that she is Queen of Quarantine (a heavy corōna indeed). She enjoys sad or sassy poetry, cooks with no real concept of stoichiometry, and watches TwoSetViolin – sacrilegious! While not a believer in time travel (even if we developed the technology, some things are best left alone), she is an avid time traveler in Animal Crossing. On a more serious note, she is here to support all GA members. Should you have any questions or concerns, want to talk about life, or think Marie seems like an interesting person, feel free to reach out. Marie wants to get to know you!
