Maya is a very motivated, mature, and hard working individual, Who’s at the point in life now where her main focus is her education and career. For her career she would like to become a dentist..It’s always been a dream of hers to work with kids in health care and this could be one way that she could do it. She’s 17 years of age, a native from Chicago, Illinois and attends Powerhouse High where she will be a senior. Living in the Austin Community, a dream for her would be to open her own dental office and give free checkups and teeth cleanings to residents who cannot afford it.
Teamwork plays a big role in her life where she has been on the basketball team, debate team, and chess club. Maya has also volunteered at her school, church, and Hull House (Orr Academy). Worked in After School Matters:Business Of Music (ASM) and Youth Service Project: Department Of Art (YSP). Her goals are to graduate from a school of dentistry and become a dentist, and to join or build a group for lesbians, gays, bisexuals, asexuals, transexuals, pansexuals and straight (LGBATPS) people to go when they don’t feel safe or welcome.
