My name is Maria Patrascu and I am a 21-year-old pro Canadian tennis athlete and digital content creator/influencer on Instagram.
I picked up a racquet when I was 5, started competing professionally full time at 17, and turned down university scholarship offers to pursue my tennis dream, which was a pretty controversial decision. Along the way (with many ups and downs) I started to share my journey with others and realized I could have a positive effect on those around me.
Little did I know that by sharing my world on social media, it would lead me to work opportunities with a few brands by luck, and 60+ collaborations later I now do this on a regular basis!
I truly hope you enjoy the stories and posts you come across on here, and perhaps find some happiness and inspiration in them too.
