The Impact

Maria Elena Perez
I'm a senior at Mercy College majoring in journalism, and have been writing for The Impact since my sophomore year. Currently, I am the Managing editor of The Impact and I am loving every minute of it. Writing has always been my passion since I was a little girl. I have really big plans to write for the New York Times one day, and nothing will stop me from achieving that goal. I’m a Long Island native, but a wannabe city girl. If you buy me a big cup of coffee and make me laugh, we'll be good friends.
