Maria Athena

Maria Handy, aka Maria Athena, is a 21-year-old American student of German and Interdisciplinary English/Writing.

Following a class trip to Italy, Switzerland, Germany, and France in August 2008 Maria began teaching herself the German language. One year later she would post a video titled “Amerikanerin spricht Deutsch” (American speaks German) to Youtube, where she would thenceforth document her learning progress.

Now fluent in German, Maria keeps an active, multilingual vlog (German, English, French) on Youtube and discusses language learning, social and cultural issues, her own experiences of living in Germany, and several popcorn subjects. Her posts are made under the alias “Maria Athena,” Athena referring to both the Greek goddess of wisdom and the arts, and the city of Athens, where she is known to have living relatives (she herself being of Greek/Irish origin).

She currently resides in Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany, where she is studying abroad at university until the end of July, 2013.
