Maya received her Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology in May 2016. As long as I have known her, she has always been a very active participant in Sports. She served as Cheerleading Captain for 4 years at her local high school, and on the competitive travel teams since fourth grade. She knew when she was 15 that she would be involved in helping people to stay fit. She felt honored to attend her top college choice, San Diego State University.
When she moved to San Diego for school, she never looked back. Her dorm view overlooked the swimming pool and baseball field. Athletic Training was her goal. She told me that she would work with those teams someday. Her dorm room view was the positive reinforcement that she needed.
She joined a sorority Alpha Chi Omega. I knew that would be the niche that she needed to be successful at her university. After being a new member for one year, she became President of her organization (as a Sophomore), and then Vice-President of Recruitment (as a Junior). I knew this experience for her would be memorable and life-changing.
If you are wondering why I know so much about this young lady, Maya is my daughter. I have enjoyed watching her grow as a beautiful and responsible adult. Congratulations Maya. I look forward to seeing what you will do with your life. You have so much promise ahead of you.
I love you!
