Maria is participating for the first time in the film festival as a content creator/ writer.

She became interested in this project because she wanted to reconnect with her Hispanic roots. Her parents are from Nicaragua, and she was born in Miami, Fla.

She enjoys reading about the history of Latin America and learning about the issues and trends of this minority group.

As a student, She believes being part of Latina Women’s League will be a great learning experience.

Maria is a public relations student at the University of Florida.
