Mari is a former beauty queen living the American dream. After moving to Maryland from Puerto Rico as a teenager, Mari enrolled in college and competed in pageants — most recently winning Miss Maryland USA in 2019 and placing Top 10 at Miss USA. Now, she is a career-focused woman on the go who is ready to find the love of her life and settle down. She says that as a partner, she is very nurturing and thoughtful, and hopes to find a man who values her and gives her the same. She describes herself as a romantic, thoughtful, "all-in" partner, and loves to make her significant other happy by cooking for them, planning small surprises and giving massages. Mari loves her job and says it’s very important that she have her own thing going for her. She also loves that she can work completely remote because she can’t wait to have kids and wants to be a working mom that shows young women they truly can have it all!
