Maya has been acting, singing and dancing since she was 8 years old. From this early age, she determined her “calling” was to be a performer – and by doing so, change the world. Maya has performed in numerous venues including House of Blues Dallas and Radio City Music Hall in NY. In 2019, she won the SPARK! award in Dallas, Texas, for her philanthropic contributions to the arts community. Maya has appeared in numerous national and bilingual commercials and most recently appeared in the children’s award-winning Apple TV+ series, Ghostwriter.
Through her professional training and artistic experiences, Maya has seen firsthand the power of the performing arts. She wants to share her artistic passion with others, especially those who are extremely talented but don’t have the financial resources to pay for classes and training.
In 2016, Maya created HeARTS of Maya, a non-profit, 501c3 foundation which provides educational scholarships to youth who want to pursue the arts, specifically music, acting, and/or dancing. Through this foundation, Maya hopes to not only assist talented youth, but encourage others to “Find the ART in their HeARTS.”
