Mariah's name was actually influenced by her three older sister's obsession with singer-songwriter Mariah Carey.
She recently found her passion in editing and social media and changed her major to Digital Media Innovation and has been working toward a minor in Sociology.
Mariah graduated from La Porte high school where she was voted senior class president in 2015. Vega was also in theatre in high school and participated in productions such as "The Wiz."
Last summer she visited San Diego, Calinfornia on a mission trip with Texas State's C.R.E.W. C.R.E.W. is a global religious organization that is dear to her heart. After going on the trip she now aspires to work at one of their headquarters around the country, so she could create videos on sharing the word of God. Mariah has traveled to various places in the last few month and isn't stopping now.
