I’m Maria! And I’m so excited to be a part of the Philly chapter for FGH! Born and raised a jersey girl, I always loved playing outside and going to the beach, however, I was always picked on for being the fat kid. My mom put me on a diet when I was just 5 and I’ve struggled with my weight since. It wasn’t until I graduated college that I stopped hating myself and started LOVING my body.
As an adult I still love being outdoors but often have trouble finding people who like the outdoors and adventure as much as I do… So you can imagine how excited I was when I discovered FGH.
When I’m not outdoors you can find me fixing up my new home in Collegeville, training my foster dog(s) which I foster through ACCT Philly, or hanging out in Philly. f you have a desire to hike or explore the outdoors, I want to inspire you to go for it! Enjoy the outdoors in the body you have now.
One of my main goals with the FGH Philly chapter is to create a fun inclusive environment for people to come together and love themselves while also building a strong sense of community.
I can’t wait to meet the amazing people in this community and share some great hiking experiences and adventures!
