Maya is passionate about working with and empowering youth to slowly take over the world and make it a better place. She also cares a lot about addressing systemic inequality and sees those two passions as intrinsically connected. Maya grew up in New York City and went to NYU for college. She graduated in 2018 having studied Anthropology with a focus on race and gender. After college Maya organized volunteers in schools through an organization called Repair the World, where she became (more) passionate about educational equity.
In her free time, Maya enjoys reading pretty much all books but especially sci-fi, and walking into comic book and book shops around the city. Maya lives in Brooklyn with many, many roommates and even more plants.
