"...I came up with a scheme. I scheme! You know I scheme!"
— Marisol to Mo

Marisol Lewis is a graduate of Degrassi Community School's Class of 2013. She had a penchant for dating athletes and being a shallow vixen. She was also Degrassi's student council president after her best friend Katie was forced to resign. Having balanced school and extracurriculars with a job at Little Miss Steaks, Marisol had simple tastes: fun times, good music and cute boys. She used to put each of those things above her own thoughts and opinions; however, she was eventually shown to have a more dominant, outspoken and blunt personality. She often proves to be quite rude and stuck-up towards anyone she lacks a personal bond or friendship with, but will readily display a more sensitive side of herself to those who matter most to her. She displays this sensitivity most often towards her boyfriend Mo, her best friend Katie, and Maya Matlin, simply on the strength of being her best friend's younger sister. Additional friends of hers include Fiona Coyne, Owen Milligan and Jake Martin. She is frenemies with Bianca DeSousa, Drew Torres, and Imogen Moreno. She is portrayed by Shanice Banton.
