Who Am I?

Maria Mora, but the homies call me Mars. I'm a New Jersey native, but I also spent some time living in sunny Florida. The North called me back though, currently residing in Brooklyn.

Growing up, writing was something I always found joy and solace in. Now as an adult, I found a way to turn a passion into my purpose.

I aim to tell rich stories that are rooted in BIPOC excellence. Whether that’s through a 1500 word article or a :15s spot, intentional and purposeful writing is my goal.

I'm currently sharpening my pen at the Jordan Brand Global Creative Studio. Let's get in touch.

Fun Facts

Plantain is my favorite fruit.

I had a brain aneurysm when I was 8 yrs old and survived. WOO!

I won county/state-wide awards playing the clarinet.

I hung out with Raekwon once and we had a great conversation. (Ask me about it if you're curious)

I wanted to be an astronaut growing up, but then I realized math was a requirement. Not my forté.
