Maryam Hassan

Maryam Hassan is a photographer, painter, teacher and debut author from London. A first-generation child of Pakistani immigrants, Maryam never felt Pakistani or English and had to find the balance of being both of these things and something entirely new all at once. Watching immigrant children come into her classes, she realized they also had stories and experiences that hadn’t been told. Maryam decided she wanted to write stories for them. She is a strong believer in the idea of a global citizen—we are all connected in this world and we should learn about everyone around us.
