Maria’s Internship

It is hard to talk about growth and experience without discussing my early life as well. I was the second oldest child in my family to pursue a college degree. My father passed away when I was very young, and my mother had a difficult time raising four children by herself. Consequently, I went to live with my aunt from the age of three until I was thirteen.
