  1. You ROCK Maya! Props to you and your parents! My daughter is 10 yrs old and interested in fashion design. She has been taking a sewing class weekly since last summer. I can't wait to share with her what you are doing. You are the perfect example of what she can do right now with the skill she is learning. All the best to you!
