Hey there! My name is Mariana, but most people call me Mari. I’m originally from Medellín, Colombia, but I moved out to California when I was 9 years old. Last year I took a year off to live in Brazil, so I’m proud to say that I can now speak fluent Portuguese, Spanish and English! Anyway, I am currently a first-year student at the University of Iowa and I am so excited to call Iowa City my new home. I’m currently living on the west side of campus. I decided to come to the University of Iowa due to its beautiful campus and outstanding writing program. As of now, I am an open major, but hopefully I’ll find my calling soon. I truly can’t wait to see what this year holds for me!
If you ever see me around campus, don’t hesitate to say hi! 🙂
