Since she was little, Maria always preferred spending her time outdoors, climbing trees and walls, than being inside. She recalls having a very active youth, which meant that she dabbled in many sports growing up. She wrestled in 8th grade, and was one of the only women in a predominantly male league up through high school. (Instagram/maria_ocr)
