A little bit about me –––



Maya is an incoming senior at Cornell University and current Associate Product Manager Intern at Google working on exploratory features in Search.

She's the Founder and Managing Editor of Let's Hear It, a female empowerment platform providing content to inspire the next generation of modern women. Maya also leads the Ithaca Transit team of CornellAppDev, a mobility app with over 11K downloads and co-founded a community program for building side projects called Backyard.

She's previously worked in product design at Facebook, designing an end-to-end guidance and inspiration tool for millions of Pages admins. Before that, she worked at Rent the Runway in product management, focusing on growth and activation strategies around a rental subscription business model. She has helped start-ups such as Sailo (Techstars '15) with design and product strategy and is always open to new opportunities.

Through her experiences, she's learned about developing products at scale as well as launching ideas from the ground up. She's passionate about using her product and design skills to execute ideas, empower users, and disrupt traditional ways of solving a problem. She's particularly interested in trends in direct to consumer (e-commerce and fashion), mobility / transportation, software, and fintech.
