Assalamu Alaikum! My name is Maya and this is the story of my life!
I was born on February 5th, 2006 in Gainesville, Florida.
My mother and I moved to Jordan (where our family is from) when I was 5 months old while my dad stayed in Florida for a while to do his work.
We lived there for about 3-4 years with my grandparents where we would see my aunts, uncle, and cousins almost daily.
When I was 4-years-old, we moved from Jordan to New Jersey with my dad so we could start our own life and I can begin going to school.
We moved into our first home there, an apartment. I didn't know English at the time, only Arabic, so my mom helped me learn throughout the summer before kindergarten.
