A graduate of Michigan State University, Maria's love of the political process has led her from DC, where she won the inaugural Washington Media Scholars Case Competition, to registering voters with the Oregon Bus Project, and to South Dakota as a campaign organizer. A Buffalo, New York native, Maria is excited to be back in the Empire State after spending two years teaching in rural Arkansas as a Teach for America Corps Member.
