This high school senior is a devoted student who has her entire high school career planned since freshman year. Maria is very involved in after school activities, including cross country and softball. She is one of the leaders of the Future Educators of Diversity Club and also participates in the Community Service Club, Young Educators Society Club and Relay For Life.

When she was younger, Maria struggled to read, so she was always writing, which developed her creative imagination. Maria said, “My favorite writer is JD Salinger, even though he's not a journalist.”Journalism matters to Maria because she likes, “To find the truth. I hate when people lie.” She likes the idea of being able to find the truth in everything.
