In one of her interviews, Maya shared, “Four years ago, my best friend entered me into a competition because she thought I had potential. I’m a rather reserved person and I didn’t think it was right for me at all. But by dint of hearing those around me telling me that I could do it, I tried. To my surprise, I enjoyed participating in this competition. She was perplexed as to why I felt so at ease. It gave me self-confidence and it allowed me to do things I didn’t even think about. “
