Mahnoor Mahmood
Science Teacher at Robert Clack School

"Maryam presented her journey from school to her current role to Y11 pupils, with the aim to promote STEM careers for BAME individuals. Maryam’s presentation was incredibly relatable and engaging for pupils. Maryam spoke on her experiences with relation to her background and was refreshingly honest with pupils, which they appreciated and felt that their questions were welcomed and well answered. Seeing Maryam’s presentation was, for many of them, validation and representation in a form that they do not usually get."

Saloni Ghai
Assistant Psychologist at IAPT Hounslow

"As part of the Intersectional Feminist Society, I invited Maryam to speak for an event we held on the experience of navigating the scientific world as a woman, where she reflected on balancing personal life with career goals. Maryam has been an inspiring and supporting figure in my professional journey and is a well-organized, creative and humble individual."
