I do continuum to serve my community: Community service is not just a buzzword; it’s a powerful force that has the potential to transform both individuals and the communities they serve. As I reflect on my journey, I find myself continually drawn to the notion of a continuum of service, an unwavering commitment to making a positive impact, one act of service at a time. I invite you to join this journey of continuous betterment. Together, we can build compassion, empathy, and impactful service.

I deeply appreciate the period during which I served my community as a School Board Member of Education in Flagler County a few years ago.

“Emigrant Maria P. Barbosa from Celorico de Basto makes history in Florida. Becoming the first individual born in Portugal elected in the ‘Sunshine State’ through the power of popular vote.”

My name is Maria P. Barbosa. I am originally from Portugal and emigrated to the United States. I lived in New Jersey for 16 years, and later moved to Flagler County, where I have resided since.
