Maria Fernanda Torres

In all Maria’s academic and personal endeavors, identifying her purpose in life has been important. With every new and continued experience, she deepens her understanding of who she is and what her passions are. Even though she is still completing the picture of what her passions look like, she knows it involves providing health and care to people, working towards a world where nature and humans are one, and fighting for the most vulnerable. Other passions she is developing involve learning about the world around her and its rich history, improving the body and mind with exercise and nutrition, and engaging with people all over the world to gain new perspectives on her thoughts and view of life. She is excited to learn, grow, and gain wisdom from past failures and successes. She is proud of not being afraid to take the next step, whether that is actively searching for opportunities, taking an opportunity, or putting herself in uncomfortable situations where she knows she can benefit.

She dreams of building a community where asking how a neighbor’s day is not uncommon. She believes that when one lives in an environment where people engage with one another, there is more opportunity to work together on problems within the community and slowly build a great place to call home. Maria believes leadership and hopes gravitate towards talking about the uncomfortable problems now to dive deep into what a community needs to excel, and she wants to lead a team to start actively creating change.
