HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE A MAVERICK?

“I just think right back to Top Gun. The movie Top Gun – Maverick…people who kind of go against the grain, a little bit wild maybe, but seem to come out on top. So I don’t know if there’s really another term that defines that definition or encapsulates that definition better. “
