A little bit about me –––



Maya is currently a senior studying Information and Computer Science at Cornell University, graduating in December 2019.

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. She also works with the Re—Inc founding team on product launches to re-imagine the status quo.

This past summer, she was an Associate Product Manager Intern at Google working on exploratory features in Search. She 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 also helped early stage start-ups such as Sailo (Techstars '15) with design and product strategy. At Cornell, Maya has led 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.

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, and fintech.
