Hello! My name is Maya Hicks, and I am a senior at Texas State University! I’ll be graduating in December 2023 with a degree in journalism and a minor in political science. I love to write short stories and poetry, take photographs, and listen to Afrofunk music.

I’m extremely excited to experience the culture of Japan. I have been very fortunate to travel internationally a couple of times during my life, and I have a feeling Japan isn’t going to be like any other place that I’ve ever been. I’m excited to meet new people, eat delicious food, see some beautiful sights, and hopefully build a bond with some of my classmates on this trip!

Places I’ve had the pleasure of traveling to:

  • India
  • Italy
  • London
  • Canada
  • Mexico
  • Paris (this was just a layover but I saw the Eiffel Tower from the plane so I count it!)

I have a passion for experiencing and understanding different cultures, and I’m beyond excited to add Japan to my list!

Here’s to the trip of a lifetime! Cheers!

P.S. Here’s a little picture of my best friend, Piper, who I am definitely going to miss more than anybody.
