Meet Maya ’25

Hi there! I’m Maya, a sophomore from Seattle, WA. I’m planning to major in Politics and minor in Economics or Africana studies. I’m a first-generation college student, and other than my involvement in admissions, I’m a part of the Scripps Pre-Law society. Outside of class, you can find me crocheting or working on the re-election campaign for Mayor Jed Leano. In the college process, I was unsure of what I wanted, but I thought that I didn’t want to apply to a women’s college after attending an all-girls high school. When narrowing down what I valued, I knew that I wanted a learning environment where I felt supported and could be intellectually challenged by both my professors and peers. I was searching for a college with strong academics and an exceptional sense of community. After only a few minutes of browsing the website, I realized that Scripps was the embodiment of everything I was seeking, so I put my preconceived notions of women’s colleges aside and applied. Now, I’m starting my second year and I couldn’t be more thrilled that I’m at Scripps! I’ve loved being able to help students navigate the college process as an Admissions Ambassador.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out, my email is [email protected]. I look forward to hearing from you.
