Introducing Me

by Mari on September 6, 2016

in First Year at Fontbonne

Hello!

My name is Maria Torres, but I go by my nickname Mari. I am 18 years old and I am a freshman at Fontbonne University. I was born and raised in Kansas City. I am majoring in Communications. I have two younger sisters. My sister Gabi is in middle school and I have another sister Sofi, who is a sophomore in high school. I also have two dogs who are both Chihuahuas. Even though I am only about 4 hours away from home, I still get a little homesick now and then. I feel so much better knowing that I have met a supportive community of students and faculty here at Fontbonne!

This past summer I was an intern through Bank of America Student Leaders. Through the internship, I worked with a non-profit called Youth Volunteer Corps in Kansas City. This awesome non-profit encouraged youth to give back to their communities through volunteering. I loved to see the youth become so happy after they finished a service project. Also through the internship, I traveled to Washington D.C. along with over 200 young people from across the country. In Washington D.C. we discussed how we can make a difference in our government, not only locally, but nationally too. It was a surreal experience to be surrounded by so many diverse people from all around the country. I met some lifelong friends through the internship.

I am very excited to start this blog during my freshman year. Feel free to give me a follow on my social media, I follow back!
