Appearance & StyleEdit
Maya had short blond hair and blue eyes and wears glasses. In her early seasons, when the school uniform was going on, Maya wore her school uniform with a coat or jacket sometimes over it. She would sometimes customize with jewelry, usually musical due to her love for music. Maya was also known to stick to sneakers instead of heels, likely due to her never being able to properly walk in them.
After the uniform code was removed, Maya, like everyone else, began wearing clothes that fit her personality. She would wear clothes that could be considered childish, usually sported with an animal on front with her hair usually down. Due to her childish body, Maya is poked fun at by several boys for being "flat". This brings Maya to decide to try to look more mature, in one attempt using bra stuffers, but utterly fails when they end up falling out publicly, embarrassing her.
As the season goes on, Maya begins to slowly shed her childish style and evolve her look a bit more, usually wearing solid color and musically themed clothes.
Maya's look became more considerably fashionable and girly. She has stopped wearing clothes with animals designs almost completely and has now switched to a more mature and trendy style, customizing her look with jewelry such as bracelets, rings, necklaces and wearing matching nail polish. She also wears more bright and colored fashion items with more trendy designs, no longer childish as she usually chose in the past, signifying her growth and gradual maturity. Maya's hair can be seen done up more often than in the past, usually in slight curls.
