She studied theatre and worked with La Mama Experimental Theatre Club of New York and studied Modern History of the Arts in Italy. In 2007, she wrote and produced her musical Tarantella ­– a group of various southern Italian folk dances. She is currently a teacher at St Joan of Arc Catholic Academy Secondary School, where she enjoys engaging students in dramatic performances, dance, and music-related activities. Marisa has a history of organizing school events, including the first Interact Rotary Student Club of the Toronto Catholic District School Board. She was accompanied by three Interact ambassadors from St. Joan of Arc.

Marisa told us how she was impressed with Rotary and thought it was too good to be true. As Courtney mentioned in the introduction, there is now an Interact club at her school. After Marisa finished her presentation, the students sat with the club’s members at their table during which they shared their hopes and dreams for themselves and for their Interact group.
Arthur thanked Marisa for her presentation.
Interact clubs organize at least two projects yearly, one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding. Rotary club sponsors mentor and guide Interactors as they carry out projects and develop leadership skills. Celebrate the global impact of Interact by getting involved in World Interact Week
