Basketball Forward for the Minnesota Lynx of the WNBA, Maya caught our eye when she was selected as the John Wooden Award winner in 2009 after leading Connecticut to the undefeated national championship. She went on to become the first pick in the WNBA Draft in April 2011. Throughout her basketball career, she has beat many records, making history by becoming Jordan Brand’s first female signee.
A memorable moment in here recent career was being selected to play in a basketball game organized by President Barack Obama to entertain wounded troops.
What we can expect in the future is Maya leading the Minnesota Lynx to the WNBA Championship. We are eager to see Maya grow and become one of the greatest female athletes in the world.
