It is about time that these stories are told!! Thank you Maria for the vision and relentless work to make the voices silenced for so long, finally heard!
Thank you Maria for being such an inspiration!
Maria, I have heard your name on NPR, but never knew you were one and the same from Kenwood! I remember you and your name but believe you were ahead of me in school. It is nice to see fellow Hyde-Park/Kenwood students create great careers /lives for themselves.
Thank you for telling this story! Is there a way I can get this text in printed copy?
Bien dicho,,, Maria
I have been inspired by your voice, your strength and your valor, Maria. May God continue to lead you in all of your future endeavors. We have some amazing stories in Dalton, Georgia if you ever want to head south again.
Gracias Maria, powerful and beautiful, great to hear your story !!
