Hi! My name’s Marie Underwood.
This is my third and final year at MCCC before transferring to CMU for their photojournalism program.
While it’s my first semester with the Agora, I was on Dundee High School’s yearbook staff and served as a co-editor-in-chief for two of my four years there.
As an introvert who had no idea what to do in life, the years I spent on the yearbook staff were incredibly formative. The experience not only pushed me out of my comfort zone and improved my storytelling, it also helped me discover a love for photography and sports writing.
Because of my experience, I started considering a career in sports media. Photographing for a men’s basketball program only sealed the deal for me.
Outside of school, I’m usually found binge-watching my favorite YouTubers, listening to music or reading a book.
