UEL track star Maya Bruney wins ‘Most Potential’ award
Maya plans to combine her love of sport and design in her future career
University of East London (UEL) Graphic Design student Maya Bruney has won a prestigious award in recognition of her outstanding potential as a track athlete.
The ‘Most Potential’ award was presented to her at a ceremony last month organised by The Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) – a programme that helps to support student athletes during their studies.
Maya’s athletics career started at the age of seven and she was a double English Schools Under-15 champion for the 100 and 200 metres.
It is a tricky balancing act that Maya has apparently taken in her stride at UEL.
On the track, Maya is focused on gaining selection for next year’s World Athletics Championships in Doha, Qatar, followed by the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
But Maya also has big academic ambitions and is already considering studying for a Master’s or even a PhD after she graduates next year.
