Born in Pakistan, now living on Darug land, Mariam is a community developer: she rallies people behind a goal and builds their capacity to achieve it. In 2016, Mariam was elected Women’s Officer of the Sydney University Postgraduate Association (SUPRA) - the only woman of colour on the organisation’s Board. In 2017, She became the President of SUPRA – the youngest in the organisation’s 40-year history. Mariam led the team that delivered a 600% increase in the organisation’s community engagement.
In 2018, Mariam won the first-ever Australian Dell Policy Hack for a proposal tackling women entrepreneurs' access to capital in Australia. By 2019, she had co-founded MoneyGirl to empower and inspire women to become financially independent.
Six short years after her arrival, the Australian Financial Review recognised Mariam in its 100 Women of Influence 2019 list. She was recognised by the Foundation for Young Australians as a Young Social Pioneer 2019, and was a Finalist for the 2020 NSW Young Woman of the Year Award.
