Maria Marchisello to Edit for the Student Operated Press

The Student Operated Press (http://www.sop.org) is pleased to announce that Maria Marchisello will be accepting the responsibility of editor.

"Focused, determined and driven" is a highly applicable description of Maria.  She is a junior at West Chester University of Pennsylvania and is majoring in English, and minoring in Psychology.  Maria currently carries a 4.0 GPA.

Maria has written a variety of papers for a variety of classes over the course of her academic career, with quite a few receiving blush-inducing praise. For years she would briefly consider turning her love of magazine journalism into a career upon hearing such compliments. However, self-doubt would soon set in and cause her to shy away from her journalistic calling. You see, she was afraid to embrace it, because writing was always her safety net. If she failed at "Life Plan A", she still had her writing, and if she failed at "Life Plan B", she still had her writing, but if she failed at writing itself...then what?

Fortunately, time and experience have taught Maria to let go of that inhibiting mind set. She has been given the courage to accept her talents, to continuously hone her skills, and to go as far as she possibly can. It is also her belief that the combination of this flexibility with her enthusiasm will aid in garnering the industry experience that she craves.

Maria has proved herself by contributing to the Student Operated Press as well as being published in the Local Buzz Magazine, Stuart, FL.
