maysaa is an arabic name, meaning 'walking with pride', and that is what she does. she was born in the capital of lithuania, vilnius with a big lawyer father and former supermodel mother. her father was lithuanian and her mother arabian and neither felt that the country that they grew up in was appropriate for their daughter. they have big dreams for her future and where else but america would be the best place for her to pursue them? so when maysaa was four, and her father had just won a huge, ongoing case they moved to the upper east side of new york.
her parents had always known you have to work for what you want, develop brilliant conversational skills and build up confidence if you wanted to get anywhere in life. here in new york, anything you wanted was handed to you on a silver platter, and moving maysaa here they knew there would be no exception for their daughter. therefore whenever an easy opportunity arose for her they made sure she would not take it and instead work for a better one. after years of this, consequently maysaa became ruthless, ambitious and people knew she was destined for power since she was fourteen years old.
the high school her parents selected for her was absolutely stellar, and made sure that she knew this, and how lucky she was. it had been ten years and they still hadn't relented and controlled every aspect of her life in order to keep her grounded, but dominant. but something changed maysaa, and this something was puberty. she went into high school with the goal to learn and succeed like the first fourteen years of her life and barely realised she turned heads wherever she went. her long dark hair and striking features attracted fans, and it was only a matter of time before she became distracted and embraced her new found popularity, leaving her previous goal to learn and only learn, well.. in tatters. she became wrapped up in the new york lifestyle and found she actually enjoyed being powerful without even having to try at all. she enjoyed the male attention and enjoyed watching people try desperately to be her.
but when she was seventeen and her ego had inflated and her motivated deflated, her mother had a heart attack. she survived, but barely and it was the wake up call that maysaa needed. she realised just how much she cared for her parents and became aware of the fact she wouldn't even be in this country if it wasn't for them and decided she'd get her grades back in order and stop getting distracted with parties and boys. she thought that meant the end. she thought there was a choice between doing well and being queen bee. but as she soon discovered, popularity doesn't fade the minute you have goals. she could have both, and she does.
↠ personality: maysaa always has been determined, ambitious, confident and a little arrogant. all the right traits for the right leader. she's enthusiastic and strives to do well, always student president or some other position that provides a little power; she's just a magnet for power. but all her leadership traits aside, she's actually a very endearing, mysterious person who's always up for a challenge. she holds herself in high regard with her grace and elegance and never fails get her opinion through and voice heard without shouting. but boy does she love gossip, and adores it when there's some drama about, as long as she's not involved. when confronted, she snaps back and refuses to admit that she's wrong, even when she can she can see that she is. it's the lawyer in her from her father, and she plans to follow in his footsteps. as she thinks so highly of herself she almost never puts anything toxic in her body and avoids cigarettes and drugs at all costs, although the odd glass of champagne is welcomed. but just because she likes to work out and keep her body free from harmful substances, it doesn't mean that she's not fun. on the contrary, she's the first person you'll ask if you want a night of intrigue and adventure (apart from skye of course).
