Originally from San Diego, Marianna joined the YIA family in June 2017. She tries to incorporate her ever-growing loves for photography, laughter, storytelling and music (mostly R&B and folk) in everything she does. Previously she has worked with youth at Hope High School and William D’abate Elementary and is dedicated to supporting students grow. She currently studies education, ethnic studies, and English at Brown University and hopes to be an educator and activist for as long as she can. You can catch her near sun, open land, and a body of water.
