MAYA Initiate 39: The Long Walk to Destiny

    By

    "Maya: Initiate 39" is an adult work-piece that explores the ordeals of Maya Isaacs. An over-protected single child, a victim of a broken home, Maya was raised singlehandedly by a man whom she knew as her 'father,' Samuel.

She was sent to the United States for Secretarial studies, worked for Van Brussels' company for a couple of years, and then returned to her native Durban home in South Africa with her husband, Daniel Young, to find her father, who she had left years before. Maya became a woman of substance. Her fame and enterprise rose up the corporate ladder. But before then, something happened… .
