Meet the model: Maya is a Louisville native & millennial who co-founded StoryWood Bowties, a Louisville fashion business that salvages historic wood to offer people unique accessories w/ stories behind them. With a brand new studio space & a partnership with the head of UofL’s History Department, she’s excited to take the business to the next level.
Maya experienced hardship early in life by having to watch three of her siblings go through heroin addiction. At the same time, she feels fortunate to be blessed with a non-addictive personality.
After meeting her husband Maya became a Muslim and found hope in the Islam faith: “The more I learned about Islam the more beautiful it became to me and started speaking to my heart.”
Aside from expanding StoryWood Bowties, Maya’s future dreams are to travel the world & eventually start a family.
