“I definitely think I’m resilient… Sometimes I surprise myself, because there’s been a few times I feel like oh my god, this is the end of the world — and then it’s not the end of the world. And then I’m back.”
With a loud, unapologetic approach to life and Leo energy always, Maya Jama has carved out a space in the media industry that’s unequivocally her own. Covering our Autumn issue, the presenter and TV personality talks moving at a million miles an hour, taking every opportunity she can and refusing to limit herself in any way.
From her recent stint co-hosting BBC One’s Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer, to upcoming acting plans and a new line of face masks in the works, Jama reflects on the rapid rate her career is expanding and how she’s learned to adapt to the invasion of privacy it brings. Looking back on the various hardships she’s overcome in life, she explains why speaking out about her experiences has been imperative to owning her narrative, and how she’s let go of self-doubt to come into her own.
