Mariam Vakani Author

Mariam is seventeen, currently in her second year of battling her way to a BA in English Literature and Philosophy at Ryerson University in Toronto. When not struggling to make sense of poetry or philosophy and drinking coffee, she can be found blogging, reading, wishing she had a cat or tweeting incessantly about boring things. She's joined MYM to get a chance to express herself whilst learning from other great writers, and hopes to find her place as a writer for the Muslim community so that she can fulfill her dream of making a dent in Muslim literature.
