Mariam Maz Hakim
ESPAND BY MAZ
Maz, also known as Mariam Hakim is an Afghan Australian living in Dubai. Her parents left Afghanistan as refugees in the late 1980’s in difficult circumstances. With the aid of a smuggler and with three starving children to protect, they escaped on horseback past searching helicopters and the threat of the patrolling army. Eventually Maz’s family crossed the border safely and moved to Australia as refugees and skilled migrants.
