Maria Prenza Mora

KIPP Massachusetts Public Charter Schools

Maria is an extraordinary alum from KIPP Academy Lynn Collegiate. She plans to major in nursing and minor in psychology at the University of Massachusetts. While excelling as a high honor roll student in her junior and senior years, she worked as a nursing assistant in the Beth Israel Lahey Health System at Beverly Hospital. She always had a passion for increasing healthcare opportunities for people in her community, especially after living in the Dominican Republic where so many lives were lost due to having limited access to medical care. It is important for her to pursue a career where she can care for expecting parents as well as patients who need intensive care. As a nurse she aims to help people feel supported in times when they may have no one else.
