Maya Penelope Hart (Hunter in the GMW series finale) is one of the main characters in the Boy Meets World sequel, Girl Meets World.

She is best friends with Cory's daughter Riley and is later adopted by Shawn Hunter after he marries her mother Katy. Like Shawn, Maya struggles academically, but possesses a great deal of street smarts and common sense.

Maya's upbringing bears some similarity to Shawn's; Maya's father abandoned her and her mother when she was five, and consequently she initially looked to Cory as a father figure, similar to how Shawn viewed Feeny. Her focus gradually shifted to Shawn after they met, but she still regards Cory as a mentor, and even said more than once that Cory is the best teacher there is.

Maya developed a crush on Cory's younger brother Josh, nicknaming him "Boing", but Josh, citing their nearly three-year age difference (even though he once remarked that she "grew up gorgeous"), initially takes little notice until GMW Season 3; he confides in Maya that she is the best friend anyone could ever have, although Maya believes that Riley is more so. Joshua finally admits that he likes Maya as well, and that he's willing to "play the long game"- that is, they each live their own lives but continue to be out there for one another, to which Maya agrees.
