Maya Felix (she/her) is a model, a speaker, an advocate for a number of important causes.. and she’s just getting started.
Maya never thought this would be in her future, but when an image of her for a series titled Natural Beauty went viral, was viewed by millions, and featured in news articles around the world, her life changed.
Ever since, Maya has used her platform to showcase her dedication to being authentically, unapologetically and shamelessly herself - always encouraging other young women to find the confidence to do the same.
She is passionate about promoting body acceptance, fighting mental illness stigmas and encouraging women to shed the shame when it comes to their sexuality. She always aims to shine a light on the inequalities in our society and amplify stories and voices that too often get overlooked by mainstream media.
Since she began modelling professionally in 2019 she has worked with many great brands, including big names like The Body Shop, Adidas and Hollister. She has also been interviewed by publications such as Glamour UK, Boots magazine and Popsugar, and has featured on panels and podcasts.
When Maya is not working she can be found doing yoga or pole dancing, tending to her many houseplants, or foraging in hedgerows and forests on the outskirts of London.
