Hi, my name is Maya Stokley!
I am a senior attending Donald M. Payne School of Technology. I represent the NAACP Act-So Newark Branch. I am very excited to graduate and finally begin my journey to becoming the authentic version of myself. My goals are to sing in a musical, publish poetry collections, sing with people globally, and write stories that people need to hear. I surround myself with nature to help me compose who I am as an individual.
Music and writing nourish my purpose and gives me an outlet to express how I am feeling. To add on, I use these two elements to portray a character or message.
As the oldest of three children, I know that responsibility will be important when I am an adult. However, I know that it is my responsibility to stay true to who I am as an artist, daughter, friend, and individual.
