Maya Weikert

Senior Water Challenge Ambassador

Maya is a rising Senior at the Baltimore City College High School in Baltimore, Maryland. Her spark of interest in environmental issues started at a young age, visiting the aquarium. Maya has furthered her passion to save the planet after being chosen as a student intern working alongside Baltimore’s Office of Sustainability, on a campaign titled “Baltimore Beyond Plastic.” A youth-led group of five students that fight to reduce the amount of plastic in schools, our communities, and the Chesapeake Bay. Outside of her work with the Office of Sustainability, Maya founded and is president of a Surfrider Student Club at her school. Along with this, she plays varsity field hockey and lacrosse and writes for the school newspaper.
