When asked about her art submission (pictured below) for The Orange Shirt Contest, Marissa states"When I think about the Residential School System, our history, and the Orange Shirt day story I am reminded of my grandmother and the struggles of many others who lived through this. I drew my inspiration for this design from my grandmother. I am driven by her courage to overcome such obstacles and I am thankful for her strength and her stories. This picture is a tribute to her and our nation(s)."
