Former Interns

Maya Nir


Maya Nir is an active, eager third-year student at UVA. She lives just down the road from Virginia Humanities’ new office, and has enjoyed engaging more with the Charlottesville and Virginia community in this role. She is passionate about journalism, international relations, and social justice. When she’s not doing school work or connecting with new guests for the show, you can find her on the frisbee field (go Hydra!), volunteering at Caromont farm (eating a lot of goat cheese), or fostering dogs and puppies from the CSPCA.
