Mary O’Hara is a 21-year-old student from Huntingtown, Maryland. She studies international politics as a major and has minors in information sciences and technology, SRA and German. Despite having a busy academic schedule, O’Hara still makes the time for her passion, modeling.

O’Hara currates her modeling career on Instagram and has her friends take photos of her while she is on campus. On her breaks from school she is frequently working with photographers from D.C. and Philadelphia. She has amassed over 1,000 followers on social media since her sophomore year at Penn State and she says it keeps growing.

“It’s something I love doing and I think people like it,” she said. “I would do it if I had 3 followers or three-million.”
