About Maria Morava
Maria is passionate about cultivating empathy in unlikely places. She finds great hope in the prospects of empowering women, providing education worldwide, and celebrating brave vulnerability along the way. Her interests lie in several mediums: theatre, dance, music, and writing - and her goals this year include molding her craft to fit innovative purposes geared towards social change. She also hopes to achieve fluency in Senegal's native language, immersing herself completely in the culture and dynamic of the community. Maria is thrilled to be exploring her passions in a global context. She holds to the words of T.S Eliot as she embarks on this journey: "We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time."
