Maya is a happy transplant from the Uk~ her time is spent Acting Writing and as Rental Coordinator for the Subud LA Center ~
Discovering Subud in the 70’s ~ As a single mom in Tunbridge Wells Maya created a bakery enterprise “MIRASA” a name given by Bapak (what a special time and group of friends!) This lasted for 12 years ~
In Los Angeles ~ having a pulse for the damaged and less fortunate she was guided to Toni and Gene Bua and Acting For Life receiving Acting classes for 12 years she was the Youth Outreach Director for their 501c3 foundation bringing over 800 At Risk Youth and People in Recovery to their award winning “2nd Wind The Musical” for 4 years ~ a raw gritty and uplifting production ~ many letters of gratitude arrived!
Maya taught herself fundraising and created Drama workshops ~ writing was a huge part of this process!
Although Maya would not describe herself as a Poet ~ (leaving English Language behind as dropped out of school at 16 for Art College) she writes continuously in spurts when something creates a spark ~
A few years ago there was a period of two weeks when in the wee hours she awakened to write night after night ~ so these writings arrived ~ they weave around her life’s journey and loved ones struggles ~ originally called Granny Raps as she had a strong feeling to share them with youth ~
