Maya Rowencak began her mission to send aid to orphanages in January 2009. She started helping children in the Philippines and later expanded to Ukraine. By November 2010, she officially founded Maya’s Hope.
Maya holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Piano Performance and French Literary Studies from Rutgers University. She speaks fluent French and Italian, is a muay thai enthusiast, and loves reading books on philosophy.
One of her favorite writers is Alain de Botton. Her favorite fighters are Wladimir Klitschko and Manny Pacquiao. She believes in fighting for those who do not have anyone to stand up for them and believes in the power of a mother’s love.
Maya hopes to help more cutie pies throughout the world who are in great need of hugs, encouragement and most importantly, love.
