My name is Maya. I was born in Tijuana, Mexico. After many years of parties, drugs and alcohol I decided to travel along the coast of America to find inner peace. Unfortunately I didn’t find it there. Everyone I met told me that I would have a better chance in India, so I decided to go to the Netherlands. I don’t let hipsters guide me.

The Netherlands is the land of tulips, weed and red windows. At least that’s how I saw it. No lie, but there is more in the Netherlands than this image. It is a land of opportunity.

After months of looking for a job, I was able to start at Silvester Maria. How lucky for Silvester Maria that I come from a family where hat making is a centuries old tradition. Who do you think invented the sombrero.
