Writer, Actor + Activist Takes Over Insta Stories

This week for #freeyourmindfriday, Maya Richardson, a writer and actor passionate about mental health, took over our Insta stories. Check out her bio below!

Maya is an actor, writer, activist and mental health advocate from Minneapolis, MN who has always found magic in putting her pen to the page. Graduating in the spring of 19’ from Viterbo University with a BFA in Musical Theatre and a minor in dance, Maya spent the past year touring the country with a live Nickelodeon musical, is now a writer for the organization Mixed in America, and the director of outreach for the Emerging Artist Initiative. She has a hunger for social justice through an artistic lens and has recently realized the power we have to destroy the stigma surrounding mental health by sharing the vulnerability that comes with it and normalizing that there is no “normal,” and that we are all learning how to navigate our brains the best we can.
