(Written by Brenda) Maria Acosta is a sophomore, from Queens, New York, majoring in History. She is part of MEChA, a Latino political organization which is the best student group ON CAMPUS! Maria is known universally by her friends as a bubbly, funny, and charismatic person. Yet, don’t let her small stature fool you. She can be pretty ferocious when provoked, so please refrain from saying negative things about the Yankees in her presence. Her deepest wish is that she had been born during the Greek and Roman Golden Ages, so she might have had the chance to consort with Socrates, Plato, and Julius Creaser. She is an anglophile at heart, and is a sucker for shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Mad Men. Don’t be afraid to stop her and talk to her on the street: she would be more than happy to talk about anything from politics and philosophy to Disney movies or 90s cartoons.
