North Central Texas College
Wells Fargo Scholarship Recipient
Mari came out to herself, her family, and close friends during her senior year of high school. She went on to participate in an LGBT+ teen group at a local church. After graduating high school, she decided that a community college would be the best fit for her. Mari went on to study her first college history classes and met with other LGBT+ students at her campus. She has seen students being ignored for their identity or sexuality because of the idea that it is a fad. Mari plans on developing her love of history in order to benefit the LGBT+ community and dismantle the idea that LGBT+ individuals have only shown up recently.
