Youngest Best In Dallas: Maya Delgado Shares Her Love For All Things Dallas

“Bubbly”, “fun”, and “always smiling” are just a few ways of describing our youngest feature of Best In Dallas, Maya Delgado! Delgado is the founder of Hearts of Maya, a nonprofit organization that provides educational scholarships to students who have a passion for the arts. After realizing her own passion for music, dance, and acting, Maya wanted to extend this to the youth who loved the industry as much as she did but who didn’t have the financial means to pursue their dream. EDITMaya__122 The talented 11-year-old is also an actress and singer, she was born to entertain! Contribute to the Hearts of Maya cause by attending their Kendra Scott giveback night this Sunday, Sept. 16 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at The Plaza at Preston Center, 8300 Preston Rd. This heart of gold is destined to do amazing things. Read on to see to see where our youngest Best In Dallas feature fulfills her cravings and retail-therapy needs!  17_0123_princi_2803

Food Favorite: Princi Italia

Who doesn’t love a little taste of Rome? Maya’s loves having dinner or lunch at Princi Italia, an authentic yet modern Italian restaurant that serves homemade pasta, pizza, salads, and more! Maya’s go-to dish is the chicken meatballs that are made fresh on the spot. Thinking about this eatery that serves dishes with immense flavor is making our mouth water! Bon Appetit! 31959765_10156346986138029_3665376556999507968_n

Dessert Desires: Sprinkles

We all love to indulge in a little sweet treat when we aren’t trying to achieve that "perfect body." When it comes to dessert, Maya’s favorite hot spot is Sprinkles Cupcakes. The little brown cardboard box holds her (and ours too) favorite, a red velvet cupcake. Sprinkles also has an ATM cupcake machine which is perfect when you're on-the-go! 


Entertainment: Texas State Fair

Big Tex season is right around the corner, and the number one fan is this Best In Dallas feature! Maya’s favorite place to go is the Texas State Fair! She loves riding all the rides, the giant Ferris Wheel, and of course, all the fried foods! The Texas State Fair has the best things to offer and Maya even got the chance to perform on stage in years past! Check out this talented girl:


Fashion: KidBiz, Kendra Scott, and Swoozies

Retail Therapy is the only therapy! Delgado’s favorite places to pick up her “swag” is Kidbiz, Swoozies, and Kendra Scott, where she will be having a giveback night event, benefiting Hearts of Maya. This kid-friendly event will have some great tunes and light refreshment where you can meet the talented young lady yourself! You don't want to miss out!

I Heart Dallas: Art District

“There are so many amazing places in Dallas but my favorite is the Art’s District! We have some of the best art, theater, opera, and exhibits in the country!” said Maya, and we couldn't agree more! Regardless of the scorching heat or the horrible traffic that awaits us every morning on 35, we love our D-town and especially the arts district!
