Karissa Lynn Anderson is a junior who attends Corry Area High School. She was born on March 23, 2005, making her an Aries, and graduates high school in 2023. Also, Anderson is from Spartansburg, PA. Despite the fact that she is an only child, has five very beloved pets. She has two pet guinea pigs named Jenny and Ivy, and three dogs named Junior, Lily, and Rosa.

As far as future plans go, Anderson says that she thinks she will pursue a career in the health or mathematics field. Despite wanting to join fields that involve a lot of math, she says that her favorite subject in school is actually English. When asked why her favorite subject is English, she said that she enjoys the easy and tolerable work, she has a lot of friends in the class, and she really likes the teacher, Ms. DiLuzio. Speaking of future plans, Anderson says that her dream vacation is anywhere tropical and close to an ocean.

Next, there are a couple things you may not know about Anderson. Hobbies that she takes interest in are doing puzzles, playing her PS4, and doing her makeup. Also, her favorite color is purple, and her favorite movies are “Anastasia” and “Avatar.” When asked if there was an animal that she would match her personality to, she said a sloth because they only have “so much energy.” If she had to pick a favorite type of food, she would pick Chinese food, and her biggest pet peeve is bad hygiene. 

Lastly, Anderson’s favorite quote is “Your illness is not your identity. Your chemistry is not your character.” Also, a piece of advice that she wants to leave the readers with is that “You only live once, so don’t waste your time being stressed out over homework.”
