Maya is fifteen years old and in her fourth year with Ballet Theatre Queensland. She is currently training at the Queensland Ballet Academy and Queensland National Ballet. Maya was very grateful and excited to receive the Jodie White-Bivona Memorial Scholarship this year and would like to thank the Whiteley family for their support of this award. Maya is looking forward working with Miss Clare and Miss Kym and the BTQ family to continue building her skills and experience throughout this season's production of Cinderella. Maya aspires to dance as a professional ballerina in the future.
