Meet The Wrap Up's New Presenter: Maya Jama
Catch Maya on The Wrap Up on MTV Base every other week on Thursday at 10pm...
Meet Maya Jama, MTV's brand new presenter for The Wrap Up.
Half Swedish, half Somali, she said she's, "Proud and grateful for the opportunity to fly the flag for young Somali women in the media as there are very few."
At just 16 Maya made the move from Bristol to the bright lights of London, where she started working for JumpOff.TV presenting the weekly music video countdown.
From there she went on to land her first TV job with Sky on TRACE Sports, before joining Rinse FM as a weekday DJ.
Clearly thrilled to be joining the MTV team, Maya exclaimed: "I started presenting with MTV as the aim so this is crazy and I can't even explain how happy and excited I am!"
Once described as an 'excitable ball of energy', this fiesty rising star is forever trying to make people laugh, and reckons she can do 30 different faces with accents to match!
In case you were wondering what her star sign is, she's a Leo, oh and LOVES ice cream and carrot cake (in case you wanted to get her a welcome present.)
Welcome on board, Maya!
