Maria was born in El Salvador at a young age, and my interest in fashion and the world of beauty became evident. In my native country, El Salvador, I enjoyed helping my mother sew and participate in crafts. However, when I immigrated to the United States, I faced several obstacles and had to start from the bottom rung of the ladder of life. My first job was cleaning offices, followed by working as a waitress in a restaurant. Although the difficulties didn't deter me, I eventually got an opportunity at a designer boutique, which marked the beginning of my journey in the world of fashion.
