About Me

Hi all! I was a Woman Thrive Member! Happy to be here now too! For a little bit more about me, here is my bio!

Named one of the six experts to watch by NewsDeeply.com on female genital cutting, Mariya has worked in the anti-gender violence field in research, policy, program development, and direct service for over a decade. In 2015, she cofounded Sahiyo, an internationally recognized, award-winning organization to empower Asian communities to end female genital cutting (FGC). Mariya also is the Narrative Liaison at Topos Partnership, a communication firm dedicated to understanding the cultural common sense to bring about progressive change. Mariya’s writing has appeared on NPR, Ms. Magazine, Huffington Post, Brown Girl Magazine, Solstice Literary Magazine, and more.

The Manhattan Young Democrats named her a 2017 Engendering Progress honoree and ABC news did a special feature on her, entitled: Underground: American Woman Underwent Female Genital Mutilation Comes Forward.
