The Northwestern University graduate also interned at the Texas Tribune Chalkbeat during college. They have a bachelor’s degree in journalism and global health studies, with a minor in legal studies.

Reporting on the intersections of health, politics, and social justice, they spent their freshman year digging into equity issues that face residents living in the Chicago area. Spring of their freshman year, Maia uncovered that Chicago’s Native American COVID-19 mortality rate could stand at triple the rate of the city’s overall population — a statistic the city had otherwise kept under wraps. They also investigated how coronavirus mask regulations and poor interpretation infrastructure obstruct emergency care services for those who are deaf.
