Maria understands how difficult becomes to navigate different systems, she is originally from Mexico City, Mexico. Moving to a new country was not expected or plan by choice. Maria has been living in Utah for 14 years, English is her second language, and as many of her parents, Maria has struggle finding resources, this why she decided to learn how to build bridges for her community and support the needs she sees and hears.
