Maima is in Year 12. She loves school because she gets to meet lots of new people all the time and she believes this is deeply enriching. Maima loves fashion and recently designed a range of cocktail dresses in Liberian fabrics, which are very special to her mother.

Maima has won several leadership awards as part of her work as a youth consultant for Brimbank Council. She loves trying new foods and movie nights with her family, which includes five siblings. Maima fears not being able to do the things she loves, and worries about being separated from her family.
