About this submission

Maya is living a secret life and hiding it from one of the few people she has known and loved all her life. Her grandmother is a Peruvian immigrant and a devoted Catholic—steadfast in her cultural traditions. Maya’s relationship with Jade, her same-sex partner, has recently reached a new milestone, and while she couldn’t wait to share the news with her closest friends and family, she was quickly reminded of the reality that she has been hiding both her sexuality and relationship from her grandmother for years and is now struggling with whether she wants that to change.
