About me

Marissa I. Chavez just graduated college from California State University Los Angeles. She received a Bachelors Degree in Journalism on May 20, 2019 and holds three years of experience studying and working in multimedia journalism, newsrooms, broadcast media, and hosting/anchoring news shows.

Born on September 15, 1997 in sunny San Diego, she came to Los Angeles to pursue her childhood dream of living among the ‘stars.’ Her interests include, concerts and events, theater, sports, fashion, writing books and musicals, all things Disney, and of course, spending time with her family and friends.

She enjoys reporting hard news, investigative, entertainment, enterprise and has a background in broadcast, print, and digital news.

Marissa is currently employed as the Managing Editor for the University Times at Cal State LA, where she is also a staff reporter; writing 2-4 weekly articles and producing multimedia packages for a special section of online news. She has experience as a writer, reporter, social media coordinator, host, digital editor, and a producer for news packages.

Her goal in the news world is to reform and justify the art of journalism. She believes in reporting both sides to every story by providing facts and evidence rather than voicing her opinion.

“Here to tell your story, not mine.”
