Marie Underwood

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.
