About the Author

Maia is a queer femme writer, activist, and artist living in Cleveland, OH with her fiance. Maia grew up practicing the arts, attending public arts magnet schools in Jacksonville, Florida as a child. She began playing the violin at seven-years-old, and trained in both classical and folk music through her first year of college. Maia has written poetry since she can remember.

Maia’s educational achievements include a H.S. diploma with a Fine Arts Seal from Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, a B.A. with double majors in Cognitive Science and Medical Anthropology from Case Western Reserve University, and an M.A. in Bioethics and Medical Humanities from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and Graduate Studies. Maia completed her graduate program with a 4.0 GPA.

Maia’s art and writing draw on themes of social justice intersecting with medical/health humanities, bioethics, gender critique, disability, mental illness, somatic exploration, trauma, community healing, and spirituality. Through this blog, the author hopes to educate, illuminate, and inspire readers to reflect on how culture, health, social liberation, and creativity intertwine through each of our lives.
