In addition to InnoWorks, Maria is involved with many other student organizations on campus, including the Taiwanese American Student Association, the National Engineering Honors Society Tau Beta Pi, the National Engineering Civil Engineering Honors Society Chi Epsilon, and the Asian American Student Union.

Maria has been involved with InnoWorks since her freshman year. She first started out as a mentor and grew to fully appreciate the support and mission of InnoWorks throughout the years, becoming Curriculum Co-Director and eventually Co-Director with Jana Lovell in 2009-2010. InnoWorks has helped Maria realize her passion for teaching, and she hopes one day to formally pursue teaching as a career.
