Maya Hanson


Biography of Maya Hanson

A little about me:
My name is Maya Hanson, otherwise known as Mye. I was actually named after Maya Angelou...what a coincidence, I followed in her footsteps and write poetry and stories as well. I am 18 and a freshman in college. I have been writing poetry since about 2nd or 3rd grade (but my older ones on here are not that great) . A lot of my poems are also songs.

I love to write; I'm currently doing a 200 day writing challenge for poetry and I'm also working on some novel ideas called Stealing Summer,10 (Sort Of) Sins I Committed, Falling for Hayley, Over the Edge, Forever Is Too Long, and Into the Unknown.

I used to be a gymnast and I still follow elite gymnastics obsessively. Some of my role models are Aly Raisman, Carly Patterson, Kyla Ross, Bailie Key, Aliya Mustafina, Victoria Moors, Angelina Kysla, Simone Biles, Larisa Iordache, Viktoria Komova, Maggie Nichols, Katelyn Ohashi, and Madison Kocian.

I play the piano and sing in an a cappella choir. I also do duets with my sister.

I am the oldest child in my family. I have one younger sister who is 15 and 3 cats.

Thank you for visiting! ! ! I would love your feedback!

The Gray Choice

We assume the world is black & white,
But what about blue & yellow?
What about when the fork in the road has 3 spikes
And we assume the world won’t end
Even if we make the gray choice
But what if we make the gray choice,
The one in between?
What happens when you dare to dream,
Dare to make the center choice?
