Marigot Fackenthal
Senior Marigot Fackenthal thinks of herself as primarily a STEM student, but she also enjoys writing. She loves processed food but was recently diagnosed with high cholesterol and is now on a mission to eat vegetables. Marigot’s favorite YouTube video is “Rolling Raccoon,” and sending the link is her go-to method for comforting sad friends. A fun fact about Marigot is that she makes a conscious effort to wear her “Jurassic Park” T-shirt once a week. Contact at mfackenthal17@scdsstudent.org
