#STRONG is a social project that was founded and created by Maria Vitoratos to support the youth around the world. October 10th, 2019 brought a great tragedy to Maria's family when her eldest 21-year old daughter passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. With grief brought deep sadness and a great amount of concern that as Dania, many other youth may also be struggling with feeling lost, confused and disconnected from strong real role-models. #STRONG is a platform that stands firm in family, connection and community.
As a Youth Advocate, Maria strives to support the youth, their families and their communities by bringing global citizens together to share their life stories with the hope of inspiring and motivating resilience and a knowing that someone, somewhere in the world understands their struggle and they too can make it through.
