Angel of the Month
Each month, The Angelrock Project will feature an Angel of the Month and an Angel Interview of the Month, interviews of inspirational people involved in grassroots volunteer efforts, exceptional humanitarian endeavors, manage small, local non-profits providing extraordinary services within their communities, and/or who provide a unique and life-saving service within a national non-profit organization. We hope that by reading their stories, you will be moved, inspired, and grateful for their tremendous efforts.

I am also fascinated by science and math. I love spending time with my family and friends, but often find myself reading anywhere and everywhere. I am often tempted to step inside some of the characters that I read about. I recommend the following books: Alice in Wonderland, Through The Looking Glass, My Side of the Mountain, Faerie Wars Chronicles, Harry Potter Series, and The Diary of Anne Frank.
Editors Note: Since this interview was conducted, Maya cut her hair and donated it to the non-profit organization Locks of Love. When asked about her gift, she indicated that she does not understand the big deal, and replied "...it's just hair, it grows back."
