About our guest speaker

profile photo of Mariam Issa At age 30, Mariam Issa moved to suburban Melbourne from Somalia with her husband, four children and a fifth on the way. Far from her tight community in Somalia, Mariam found herself in a foreign country with a foreign language and culture. Similar to a butterfly emerging from a cocoon, she spent ten years going through depression, the victim phase, an anger phase, and finally, arriving at the activist phase. Through her powerful stories that tell her trials and tribulations, she has inspired countless women who have had similar experiences to stop seeing themselves as victims, but to see the butterfly within in order to achieve their fullest potential.
