Testimonials from Teachers

"Maya gave an engaging performance as a panellist in the first Environment Question Time at Plymouth University in 2015. She responded to students' questions warmly with clarity, conviction, knowledge and occasionally wit and she was interesting....all the time!"

– Dr John Maskall, Senior Lecture Environmental Science, University of Plymouth

"I have received an email from Collette Carlin at the school who wanted to pass on her thanks to you for the 'excellent inspirational talk' you gave to her students. She said ''getting 350 students to listen to every word she said was no mean feat- but she did it!'' so thank you very much for that."

– Verity Henderson, Project Officer, Cornwall Marine Academy

"Maya, the event was a great success largely in part to you! You were brilliant :)"

– Laura Ewen, Senior Account Executive, Freuds (For a Magic Breakfast event at a primary school in Birmingham which included radio interviews.)

"We were thrilled to have Maya join us last week to launch our topic 'What could I be?' The children were all engaged and asked lots of questions. It made them think about different opportunities and that there are careers in their interests that they could follow rather than the traditional occupations."

– Rebecca Norton, Headteacher, Fourlanesend C P School
