I’m Maria, I come from Queretaro, Mexico. It is a pretty, medium size city and where I’ve been living for the past two years studying at college. My major is Finance and I’m planning to graduate in 2015. My family is currently living in McAllen Texas, I’m the oldest of three children and the only girl.
This is not my first time abroad, so I’m really used to the feeling of being away from home. One of my big hobbies is travelling, I plan to go to Australia next and India and get to know the culture in each destination.

I think that travelling is more than taking pictures and collecting memories, it’s about getting to know other people and cultures to stay educated and keep your mind open to anything that life brings to you.

As for my plans in the professional field, I hope this internship increases my chances on getting a well-positioned job when I get back to Mexico and upgrade my profile among others. I also hope to have a great experience here in New York and I’ll be coming back again to let the city impress me in any way.
