Maryam is our youngest face of tomorrow. She is an Emirati student who is just starting Year 3 and is already a budding mathematician with aspirations to be the next central banker. Will she be working with Blockchain technology by then – we suspect so!

When she’s not in the classroom you can find Maryam in the gym practising her martial arts moves.
