The Patriot

Maria Monaco
Maria Monaco is currently a 16-year-old junior at Mendham High School. She is originally from Brazil, living in São Paulo for seven years until moving to New York State and then moving to Chester, New Jersey at age eleven. Maria can often be heard before she is seen, having been told she has the loudest yet most contagious laugh but when seen, is often bobbing her head to twenty one pilots or Post Malone. She thoroughly enjoys listening to music for their lyrics and parallels her love for words through her passion for writing. Maria runs for both the winter and spring track Varsity teams at Mendham but often just daydreams about summer during the hardest workouts. Although this is her first year writing for the school newspaper, she has never stopped writing since first learning English and is extremely excited to share her writing with those who want to listen.
