Maria is originally from Long Island, New York, and although she’s a Yankee fan, she loves being in Boston! Maria hopes to be a news anchor or be the next Bob Costas and cover the Olympics someday. Being of Greek, Croatian, and Polish descent, she has a lot of diversity in herself and loves learning about new cultures, organizations, ethnicities, causes, and people. Because she grew up appreciating all kinds of diversity, and also attends such a diverse university, Maria is extremely excited about writing the College Diversity blog!
