Her career has been one of a frustrated senior executive, entrepreneur and one of Australia’s women of influence.  She doesn’t have one moment that triggered a burning desire to change the world for women but many – so let’s hear them.

Mariam Mohammed is an inspirational young woman and a fierce advocate for migrant women, equality and justice. Typical perhaps of her generation in her digital smarts but anything but typical when it comes to her ability to engage with audiences and organisations to drive positive change. She was borne in Pakistan and tells us how she fought to be educated, she fought BS to be able to play sports, even when those around her thought it was “whorish” and she fought to not be treated differently to her brother. She is someone to watch as an entrepreneur and highly sought after speaker.
