July YP of the Month

July’s YP of the Month is…

Maya Dixon!!!

Maya has had an long journey with CYPT, and they wish for nothing more than to continue it. So far, Maya has done 6 shows (THE PROBABLY TRUE (BUT ALSO MADE UP) ADVENTURES OF THE IMAGINARY BOOKCLUB, SNOW WHITE, A PLAY ABOUT A DRAGON, THE NUTCRACKER: A NEW ADVENTURE, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, PURLOIN: IN THE COMPANY OF SCOUNDRELS), and is lining up for a 7th at only 13 years old. They’ll be entering 8th grade next year and over the summer they will be hanging out with friends and sitting at home having nothing to do before and after the rehearsing for the show they’re in is done. Maya is so grateful to have found CYPT and they’re unsure of what they would do with it. They’ve made so many connections and long-lasting relationships at CYPT, and they hope to work with them in the future for as long as possible.

“Sometimes the wonders and joys of life are the most unexpected and random things, but you always find them in the places you’re happiest.”

“p.s. Don’t forget to slay.”

Maya Dixon
