Maria is a lover of literature and poetry.
She has always found the arts to be a comfortable and lovely thing to study and explore. She enjoys reading in her free time, anything from the Iliad or Frankenstein to The Space Trilogy.
She memorizes poetry just in case a fireside evening calls for it. She also enjoys talking walks outside, preferably when it is cold. She loves to listen to music as well. She will always value that art and everything it entails.
She received the Northwest Scholarship from her college for performing a piano piece, and writing a poem based on a book called The Boys in the Boat. She represented Classical Christian Academy in Poetry Out Loud in Boise.
Maria will be attending New Saint Andrews College in the fall and plans on becoming a high-school literature teacher in the future.
