Maya had ideas of what she wanted her Bat Mitzvah to be like. She's very people focused without needing the spotlight. I could tell she wanted this moment in her life to feel comfortable and to reflect the things that she enjoys naturally. She wanted her ceremony to be in nature and her party to be at her home. Subtle gestures stood out, such as baking loafs of zucchini bread with a friend for her guests after the ceremony, as well as making dreamcatchers that hung from lights at the party. This was unique because it was a reflection of character that was not easily swayed by glitz and glam. Her mindset is rooted in nostalgia and human relationships. I noticed how well her and Asher, her younger brother, got along. He was a very attentive, young person and there was a sincere attitude and sense of duty to take part of this moment in her life. The Bat Mitzvah was a success because of good friends, family, and a caring spirit from Maya.
P.S. It was the best zucchini bread I ever had.
