Maria is originally from Romania. At the age of nineteen, she moved to Scotland to study Scottish literature at the University of Glasgow.
Here, she found not only a home, but also a place of reflection upon identity and upon freedom. The world of stories has always contoured her path and, through literary studies and writing, she has explored the language of multiculturalism, as well as its expression of equality and harmony.
In past years, she has taken part in different literary and artistic projects such as Tip Tap Flat: A View of Glasgow, the Glad magazine and the Research Multilingually at the Borders short documentary.
Maria hopes to study for a PhD in Scottish Literature, while also continuing to explore the self and the themes of belonging, freedom and equality through art and creative writing.

Others would put away carton boxes filled with capitalist values and their own past lives.
