Maria Hernandez is a strong, free-spirited and confident girl, who always stands up for injustice. She has a big mouth, but also the heart in the right place. She may have a plus size, but that doesn’t bother her. Her motto is “rather a size more than a lasagna less”! Love and friendship are priorities in Maria’s life. She attaches so much importance to them that she can become jealous and possessive in her darkest days.

Maria comes from a lower educated family and contributes to her family by working for her pocket money herself. She realizes like no other adolescent that if you want something, you have to work hard for it and nothing comes naturally.
