Youth of the Month: Maria Romero
Each month the Boys & Girls Club of the Coastside recognizes one young person as Youth of the Month. This month it is Maria Romero.
Do you know someone who instantly “lights up a room”? That’s Maria.
“Her personality is what stands out to me. Every time she comes into the club with her smile towards everyone, she brings light into the room. She treats everyone the same and loves to share her food with everyone”, says her mentor Jessica Jaracuaro.
Not only does Maria have a positive attitude, but she also has demonstrated strong academic performance in school. She describes her superpower as being “focused.” Maria wants to be a Math teacher when she grows up because she is very passionate about her favorite subject.
What she likes best about BGCC is that she gets to spend time with friends — and there are a lot of supplies that she can use for her schoolwork.
Whether she is at home or BGCC, Maria loves playing volleyball outside. In her free time, she also loves to dance, color, shop, watch movies – and walk on the beach with her mom on weekends. Her hero is her father. She loves how supportive he is and always looks up to him.
Keep on sharing your light, Maria!
