Description

From Linkville Press: Maya was raised single-handedly by her "father," Samuel, who had divorced his wife, Cynthia years ago, on grounds of infidelity. This was before May turned three years old. Growing up in Durban was mixed with the good, bad, and ugly for Maya. Influenced by Craig, Maya went into the underworld of stealing, drug trafficking, and prostitution under the cover of a very perverse juvenile assembly, called the Alternative Lifestyle Club. She joined the club in the very pursuit of what she called her "destiny." By becoming "Initiate 39," she went on to become popular among many top-notch Southern Africans. After several disappointments, Maya thought she could use her "connections" to bite the fingers that fed her by carrying out her given assignments her own way--a way of letting the organization know that she was no push-over. But that was not the case! Consequently, leaders of the club, led this juvenile to her doom-they set her up and the police did the rest. The long arm of the law landed her in prison in Johannesburg. It was there she knew that changing for the better would be appropriate. Through the favor from a rich gold merchant, school owner, and chairman of the Louisville Shipping Company, to whom she had cone some wrong in the past, Maya was released from prison before her sentence was up. Her benefactor sent her to the United States for secretarial studies, where she worked in his company a couple of years. She then returned to her native Durban home in South Africa with her husband, Daniel Young, to find her 'father' whom she had left years before. Maya became a woman of substance; her fame and enterprise raised her up the corporate ladder phenomenally fast. But to get there, she had to travel a very hard road. This is her story.show more
