Mariam lives in Ville Nouvelle, Fez, and has three sisters. She is a very talented young lady, with a voice of pure gold. She honored our visit during the welcoming ceremony by singing traditional Moroccan songs along with Adele's "Someone Like You."
Her own favorite musicians include Mariah Carey, Stevie Nicks, Avril Lavigne and Alicia Keys, along with Moroccan and Arabic singers. Favorite movies include "Titanic," the "Twilight" saga, and "The Wedding Singer."
Favorite books include "Les Miserables," by Victor Hugo, the classic, "Andromaque," by Jean Racine and "The Red and the Black," by Stendhal.
She is truly a global citizen, as are the majority of Moroccan students simply by the nature of their history and the many multi-cultural influences that touch them.
Mariam speaks Arabic, French and English fluently, as do the majority of her classmates.
