A native Sicilian-Italian speaker, Mariagrazia Buttitta is currently pursuing a master's degree in clinical mental health counseling from The College of New Jersey. Mariagrazia speaks to college students and organizations about her blindness, along with her long-term battle with depression and anxiety.
