A local from West Philadelphia and a lover of the intricacies of art and social justice, my name is Maria (she/her pronouns) and I’m a current first-year here at Bryn Mawr.
Between brewing coffee at Uncommon Grounds and writing ideas for Banter blogs on old receipts, I can be found cozied up reading Audre Lorde or dreaming up ideas for my CDA position in Erdman next year! I love dancing (ballet & hip-hop), attending local concerts, experimenting with film photography and adding to my plant collection. From talking about identity to exploring new places, I’m thankful for (and excited about!) the experiences I’ll encounter and capture that may, upon reflection, become near and dear to my heart. My passions lead me to consider a major in Psychology, Sociology, Education or English as I navigate my second semester, in hopes of creating honest, critical, and empowering dialogue among mawrters on and off campus.
