Maya in Paris

Maya Haws-Shaddock is a rising junior, majoring in Advertising, minoring in French, Business and Digital Arts & Media. Having been raised in Austin, she holds a deep-rooted love for local live music, funky aesthetics, and unnecessary winter clothes she’ll never get to wear. While not staring into the endless void of Adobe Masterworks, Maya spends her time working in a variety of student organizations, drinking overpriced chai, making the most of the local live music, or digging through racks of questionably clean clothing at her local thrift stores.

Favorite thing about going abroad?

For most of my life, I've lived in a very small bubble. I was born and raised in Texas, having spent most of my life in Austin, where I ended up attending college as well. Having never left the United States (or barely even Texas for that matter), I can't wait to experience a world so vastly different from my own, both in culture and in the beauty and history that exists in all forms in Paris.
