A woman who became a business woman because she doesn’t respond well to authority, Maryam happens to be a talented artist which translated to a dope business plan that hasn’t failed her yet. She teaches, directs, performs and some more shit. Mostly, she loves Black people, women and kids and will drown water to protect them. Maryam lives her art on the front line.
