Mariana lives with her mother, a housekeeper who deeply loves her daughter and makes sure she wants for nothing. Lately, however, Mariana has wanted to help out financially. That is why she decided to join Forge and simultaneously started working at McDonald’s. It was a tough year between school, work and Forge, but she made it. Later, Mariana completed an internship at a call center and for the past year has worked in the editing department of a foreign trade magazine. She enjoys her job and has excelled there – within three months she filled in for someone in the commercial area and wound up moving to that job. In addition, she finished high school and is now in her second year of college, studying Economics. She is always willing to work with Forge by providing testimonials and inspiring future graduates.
