Maya '26

Favorite class: English, for all its thought-provoking discussion
Hometown: Greenbelt, MD
Started at Burke:
9th Grade

How would you describe Burke to a new student?
A special environment that truly values every student. It is welcoming, supportive, and more than a little quirky. In the best way!

What has been a memorable moment during High School?
When my history teacher began the school year asking about pronouns and our favorite ninja turtle. Or getting to share baked goods with my class on long period math days!

Is there a challenge that stands out?
It’s certainly difficult to choose which electives and after school activities to participate in. So many options, so little time!

How do you prefer to spend the community period?
I love participating in affinity spaces.

What do you like to do on the weekend?
I love to read, babysit, and bake.
