Read Maya’s Poetry

Maya Eashwaran has always loved reading and writing. As a first generation Indian American, Maya writes a lot about foreigners and the foreigner mentality, often incorporating personal experiences dealing with assimilation in the modern age. An avid writer and musician, Maya also combines her love for poetry and music, frequently experimenting with rhythm and syncopation in her poems. When she’s not writing, you can find her doodling in the margins of a new poem, experimenting with watercolors or calligraphy, or reading Harry Potter or works by Walt Whitman.
