About The Girl

“It was impossible, of course. But when did that ever stop any dreamer from dreaming.”

—Laini Taylor, Strange the Dreamer

Hello! I’m Maya, the girl behind Pretty Little Scribbles! I am a thirteen-year-old aspiring author and, current middle school student, bibliophile, dancer, singer, and wearer of a thousand (metaphorical) hats.

For me, usually, creativity comes out in the realms of literature or the arts. I could ramble about either of those for hours, but I’ll just say that they have both shaped who I am as a person, and I am so beholden to exist in a world where they do too. I’m usually plotting for my apparently incessant novel-in-progress: The Beautiful Lucinda, inspired by one of Jane Austen’s adolescent works: The Beautiful Cassandra.

My motto is, ‘Plus est en vous,” which is French for “There is more in you.” There is more in all of us than what first meets the eye, and that is the beauty of the seemingly idiosyncratic personality behind what we show to the world outside. There is more in all of us. Even you. 

Long conversations are among my favourite things, and it only gets better when a mug of hot chocolate is involved. I love, love, love literature—its been a part of my life ever since I opened that first Enid Blyton book. I like books about orphans who go to wizarding institutes intended to kill bald, pale nose-less evil guys. No, I’m normal I promise!

I’m an ambivert to the core, and among my favourite books in the world are Clockwork Princess, Wuthering Heights, Wonder and a million more, so just check out my Goodreads! I’m a huge Disney fan, of the belief that the world always needs a bit more magic. And I really like getting to know new people. So, hello, there! I do hope that you stick around ♥

I suppose I’m still a pretty vague picture in your minds, so here are some quick facts about me!

—I run every day
—I am 5’6″ (which is actually relatively tall for a thirteen year old)
—I have very long hair, and very long painted nails
—I love any colour (be it light or dark) in the violet-indigo-blue spectrum
—I prefer tea 100% to coffee
—If I were to live anywhere else in the world, it would be London
—I often find myself pondering the meaning of a plethora of philosophical questions (slightly weird, but true)
—I am trilingual, i.e. I can speak, read and write three languages
—I think the most beautiful words in the English language are: winter, aurora and starlight
