Hi! My name is Marianna Pizzini, but I go by Mari! My hometown, where I was born and raised, is Helena, Montana. I have a deep love for my state and am really missing the smell of pines and the sunsets we get. I love my dog, Ellie May, more than I love ice cream or writing, which is a lot because both of those things mean a great deal to me. I came to Morningside in pursuit of a Double Major in English and Mass Communications, as well as a spot on the Mustang bowling team. My boyfriend, Tommy, also moved to Iowa from Montana with me to be on the team and study Computer Science. I cannot wait to see where this journey takes me!
