Maya Jama reveals how she deals with online trolls. At just 24 years old, Maya Jama is already a massive television presenter and rising star at BBC 1 Radio and she has no plans to slow down.
Maya told British Vogue: “The thing I get asked most is, ‘How are you so yourself? How do I get that confidence?’ I always respond, ‘Do whatever you would do if nobody was watching; don’t ever hold yourself back because of other people.’
“Sometimes I have to sit back and catch my breath a little bit. Hopefully this is the beginning of everything. Whatever I can do, I want to do it – because why the f**k not?”
But with success comes haters and Maya reveals her way of dealing with online trolls and negativity – by embracing her imperfections.
“If I own my imperfections, then nobody can make me feel bad about them. I’m not giving anyone else the power. With me there’s no surprises.”
Maya also opened up about her relationship with Stormzy, saying: “”We didn’t ever want to do the whole [couple] goals thing together. But, after keeping things low-key for so long, we ended up living together, being in the same places together. It was gonna come out, and it did. It is what it is.”
