Thank you, Jia and Maya, for this. Soooo refreshing to hear both the uplifting and terribly sad parts of Maya's story.
I really resonate with all of her attitudes toward sex and education and the Bible. Keep fighting the good fight! (And by that I mean the fight to stay true to your principles and desires, and claiming agency over your body.)
