Hi! My name is Maia, I grew up in Vancouver, WA and am very excited to be studying Kinesiology at Western with the hopes of becoming a Physical Therapist. I have always enjoyed being a part of my school and community. In high school I was a part of the Robotics Team and Cross Country team, as well as a volunteer at a local hospital, where I volunteered for five years since the age 15. I also enjoy reading, writing, running and being creative in my free time. I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of such an important team of people, and look forward to expanding my skill set and utilizing my outgoing and understanding personality at Western. I’m excited to meet new peers and mentors while at college, and I can’t wait to meet and support you this year!
