Hi I'm Maria

Pre-professional dancer, Miss America Organization contestant, Army Reserve Officer Training Corps cadet and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I started dancing at the age of three, and haven't stopped since. I have trained in multiple styles including ballet, pointe, jazz, hip hop, and ballroom. I recently started competing in the Miss America Organization, where I get to focus my daily efforts on serving those around me. I am a university student and currently involved in their Army Reserve Officer Training Corps program.

Why I am a Mormon

Our church really puts an emphasis on family. I am a Mormon, because I love my family more than anything. I love the church's teachings that we can truly be with our families forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others on a daily basis. I believe that I was given my life and the blessings associated with it, because God trusted me to give back to those less fortunate. I am a dance mentor for children with special needs, volunteer at the Boys and Girls Club, and frequent youth speaker about the our beauty within.
