Maria took to her Instagram stories to say, "That was my first film. A lot of sleepless nights and tears were involved. So many things went wrong and i could've given up. But I had a very supportive partner and friends who kept encouraging me to finish.

"I apply my mind and soul into everything I do. I'd really like to contribute to the growth of our industry"


Maria has also just wrapped up season 1 of a TV series she produced with Luis Munana through their company Vibration Studios. Maria is very proud of everyone that was involved in the project because they did not just create a fire project, they also created over 30 jobs for  various people. She said, "I'm currently in front of the computer editing, and it looks fire. Cant wait for Namibia to see it"

Maria then encouraged fellow creatives to keep going. She said, "To all the creatives, keep fighting. Our industry is so small and I know it can get discouraging but believe in yourself. You got this. Passion, hard work and dedication can get you far. Love always."


Seeing this Luis said that he was proud of Maria, "You're doing the most, I can't wait to watch it this coming week after Rundu"

Maria recently took a trip to the United States of America and was kind enough to vlog her whole experience for us on her YouTube channel. During her vacation, Maria visited both New York City and Austin, Texas. 

In New York, she linked up with and stayed with her friend Abby. Abby kicked off their trip by arriving late to pick up Maria from the airport but soon made it up to her by taking her to some of the best spots that NYC has to offer. The two girlfriends went to eat and do some shopping at the American Dream Mall. Here, they also got to visit an aquarium, Sea Life.
 
Abby then took her to The Edge, which is a rooftop tourist attraction that boasts magnificent views of the New York City skyline. It was funny to watch the two girlfriends get lost in the hectic New York City subway, eventually calling an Uber to pick them up. We can’t imagine what that must have felt like, getting lost in the NYC train subway.

At least Maria had her friend with her to guide her through the maze. Exploring a new city, especially one as busy as New York, is always so exciting and Maria really succeeded in bringing her subscribers along the journey with her.

They also got to see the Hudson River and it’s safe to say that Maria had an amazing experience exploring The Big Apple with her girlfriend, Abby.

Maria then left NYC and flew down to Austin, Texas to visit her best friend Bonny Bassey. Bonny is a famous TV actor, who rose to fame during his time as one of the housemates in Big Brother Africa Season 8, 2013.

Maria and Bassey met during the show where they were both cast as housemates. Bassey represented Sierra Leone while Maria represented Namibia during the show. They have been friends ever since.
