Hi, I’m Marissa, the creator and editor of The Wish Sister.

I didn’t grow up with a big sister but I wanted one so badly. I wished I had someone to confide in and guide me through the hard times. I wished I had someone who I could share clothes with and who would teach me how to do my hair (because it was a struggle, let me tell you).

That’s where The Wish Sister came to be. I wanted to create a platform for young women, just like myself, to be supported just like they always had a big sister by their side. We’ll walk through life together–the good parts and the bad.

So, before we continue on this journey together, I wanted to introduce myself to you a little more.

Like I said, I’m Marissa. I was born and raised in Alaska but moved to Charleston, South Carolina, for college. I majored in Communications and English and was a member of Sigma Kappa sorority.

I’m obsessed with my cat, Toothless, and drink more coffee than a normal person should (which would probably explain my height of 4’11”). I’ve always loved writing and really can’t see my life without it.

Now, I live in Columbia, South Carolina, and am in marketing for a technology company.

I’m excited to welcome you to this platform and, hopefully, be the big sister you’ve always needed.
