I met Maria Barreda a couple of weeks ago when we had our Snapchat project but I never really got to know her until recently. Like myself, she is not from the Long Beach area. She’s originally from the San Fernando Valley but she goes home pretty often over the weekends when she can. Although she’s Guatemalan, she really likes Mexican food, specifically tacos and burritos. When she was 4, she moved to California and has lived here ever since. When she has free time, she likes to explore Los Angeles and find new places to eat. We also both enjoy sharing new places with friends when it comes to food and explorations.
