Maria Romas is a sophomore at the University of Maryland, and is in the Phillip Merrill College of Journalism. She is also a member of the College Park Scholars’ Media, Self and Society program, and attends weekly seminars discussing the future of media and its place in the world. She is an editor for the Diamondback, University of Maryland’s award-winning paper, and was a reporter the year an a half before, covering Graduate Student Government, health, crime, student housing and political advocacy. She was a 2011 Athens Fellow for the Reinventing Greece Media Project, and spent three weeks of summer 2011 in Athens interviewing and reporting on people and situations there. Along with her experience in editing — Maria loves to correct people’s grammar and sentence structure — she loves to write. Writing is what lured her to the field of journalism — and any opportunity to write is exciting to her. Maria is active in the Greek American community, as a member of the University of Maryland’s Greek Heritage Society, and is starting up a young-adult Greek dance troupe. She grew up among a flurry of Greek activity, and refuses to give up on it.
