Maria is a reporter for Vancouver Is Awesome with a liking for social media, fashion and entertainment. She covers a bit of everything and knows where to find the coolest spots and events around town.

Before Maria joined V.I.A. she freelanced for Narcity and worked as a Social Media Coordinator. Now, she is also TikTok Coordinator for VITA Daily (and yes, she'll know exactly which TikTok trend you're talking about).

When she's not reading the news, you can bet she's flipping through an issue of Vogue.
