Sundot Ohana - Maya Our Youngest Employee

Sundot Ohana - Maya Our Youngest Employee

We recently hired our youngest employee, 12 year old Maya Maki, and had the chance to ask her some questions about some of her favorite things. Unfortunately we only got to hire her for one day, before she jet-setted off to the North Shore. Quite the entrepreneur, we think she is destined for great things and wish she could have been our Sundot Marine employee forever!
