HC: Do you feel since you have become Greek, that people have treated you differently?

HC: Are you in a relationship? If not, what do you look for in a man?
Maya: *laughs* No, I am not in a relationship. I am happy where I am, and I wouldn’t say I am looking either. Just seeing where life takes me!
Question: What are your summer plans?
Maya: This summer I am studying abroad in Beijing, China. I am studying at the Beginning Institute of Technology and I am going to be studying the Chinese Language and Culture.
HC: Describe your style.
Maya: I am very girly, and I like to wear dresses and skirts and heels. I am big on color coordinating. The better I look, the better I feel about myself and my day.
HC: What do you plan to do once you graduate Hampton?
Maya: I do plan to go to Law school. My dream law school would be NYU or Columbia. I just like the DC/ New York area overall.
HC: What is one thing you learned about yourself during your journey to Delta Land?

HC: How do you feel about Hamptons “popping out” culture?

Maya: I think that I add versatility. I am not good at one thing, I am good at many different things. I am able to do what anybody ask of me, and I will always find a way to get anything done.
