Soy del tipo de mujer que si quiero la luna, me la bajo yo solita.
— Frida Kahlo
 
 

For my non Spanish speakers, the famous quote above by Frida Kahlo says "I am the type of woman that if I want the moon, I will get it down myself." This quote really resonates with Mariah and her outlook on life. Mariah is a young Mexican-American woman in her twenties who is very passionate about life and all of the adventures that comes with it. At the start of 2018, she made a vow to live life to the fullest because she truly feels that there is no need to be held back by the fear of judgment. 

 

Aside from just living life to the fullest, she also feels that it is important to live life as authentically as possible. In the age of social media, it can sometimes be easy to fall into a trap of doing things for momentary satisfaction (aka receiving a like or a follower), however, at the end of the day, Mariah is very much the kind of person that believes that connection (with others and with yourself) is really what life is all about.
