Maria is a 13-year-old teenager. Her family has three members, her mother, her father, and
herself. Since they moved to a smaller town, her parents have been fighting a lot. Maria tried
to tell her parents about her bullying at school, but they think she is too sensitive. Because of
that, she had suicidal thoughts, and she could not pay attention to her studies.
Unlike the community she used to live, the new community is predominantly white and
middle class. The community is exceptionally hostile towards Maria. The school she goes to,
students make fun of her clothing, and they made a social media group called " I Hate Maria,"
where they put negative comments and her inappropriate pictures to bully her.

Maria is a teenager who belongs to a biracial background. Her mother is Hispanic, and her
father is African American.
