Hi! My name is Maria Stuebner, and I am joining Columbia’s class of 2024 from Yorktown, VA. In high school, as president of my school’s math society, I organized the first ever local math contest for middle school students in my area. Working with my principal, I spearheaded the first recycling effort at my school that witnessed the school-wide implementation of recycling bins, and I also founded the first French conversation group at my local university, connecting native speakers with students and avid Francophiles. I hope to bring the same leadership, vision, and collaborative spirit to CCSC this fall.
