I am Maria Pudoka and I attended Green High School. I graduated summa cum laude and with an honors diploma. Throughout my life, I have been intent on helping people in the world around me through various clubs, organizations, and projects. These include being a founding member of the Chain Reaction and Social Justice Academy clubs in my high school along with numerous volunteer opportunities. I’ve also been the vice president and treasurer of my high school’s art club and participated in World Language club and Key Club. Currently, I am pursuing my B.S. in Astrophysics with a minor in Spanish. I plan on getting involved in many organizations on campus and meeting new friends. In my free time, I enjoy painting, hiking, going to concerts, and being with friends and family. I cannot wait to start my journey at the Ohio State University with so many new opportunities and people! Go Bucks!
