Mariana has always been an objective and critical child on the subject of human rights, and her passions include solidarity, generosity, inclusion, and respect for difference and empathy for the feelings of others.  Mariana took it upon herself to start various activities to raise awareness on issues regarding inclusion. She began giving workshops on sexual orientation and gender identity in the Maria Montessori Educational Institution. Furthermore, she would mobilise the Collective to participate in mental health workshops as part of the health day at the Maria Montessori Educational Institution. In the future Mariana plans to continue to invite young people to a space where they can be heard and properly intervened by competent professionals.
