Reporter Bio: Carissa Blankenbiller

Posted on November 2, 2020 by


Carissa Blankenbiller is a junior in high school. She has been attending Fleetwood for the last 5 years. After high school, she wants to attend college and hopefully work in a field with animals. Once college is over, she wants to start a family of her own.

Carissa has two siblings, a younger half-sister who is 11 years old and a step-sister who is 16. She admires both of her parents; her dad has been there for her, and her mom could sum her life up in a short story.

In her free time, she likes to read and prefers movies over TV series. Optimism is something she carries with her everywhere she goes; she likes to look at the better sides of situations and wishes she could make the world a more positive place. Spicy food is something she could eat for the rest of her life; she likes anything that is spicy.

One of her biggest pet peeves is when people chew loudly or with their mouths open, and her worst habit is biting her nails when she gets nervous or anxious. Carissa loves animals but would prefer a dog over a cat any day.

In the future, she wants to be remembered as a good person and to be admired for what she did. She is very proud of herself for making it to the 11th grade. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have any secret talents, but you don’t need special aspects to be you; Carissa is unique and aspires to do the best she can, no matter the situation.
