When asked why Flame Bearers, Marissa said, "I love that Flame Bearers provides a platform for women Olympian and Paralympians to share their story and issues that are important to them. Every episode is carefully curated to fit the athlete and I enjoy hearing about each of their unique journeys and then cheering them on in their future matches! I am elated to join this incredible storytelling platform and empower women and girls through sports!"
