Lenovo New Realities Mariann Avila Smiling

Mariann was just 15 years old when she set up her own non-profit organization, School on the Road,  and is passionate about the transformative power of education.

Her life’s mission is to make education available to all, particularly young women and girls from underprivileged backgrounds.

She is focused on bringing STEM education to small towns and villages outside of Monterrey, one of the most violent areas of Mexico. Through School on the Road, she has reached and supported countless girls and young women across Mexico.

Mariann also recently added an arts stream to the organization’s STEM portfolio for those with little interest in science –  bringing science to life through immersive VR education.
