Mariam Markabani

Outreach Team

Mariam is a sophomore at Harvard University concentrating in Neuroscience and minoring in Global Health. Born and raised in Dearborn, Michigan, Mariam is a proud daughter of Lebanese immigrants. Mariam hopes to pursue a career in medicine to study the influence war, conflict, and displacement affect the health of vulnerable communities in the Middle East. Dedicating her time to service, Mariam serves as a tutor for Harvard’s Citizenship Tutoring Program and is an active member of Harvard’s Votes Challenge. Mariam also serves as a committee member for the Harvard FIMRC Chapter, a non-profit organization aiming to improve access to health care for children in underserved communities. Growing up in a predominantly Shia community, Mariam was fortunate to have a space to learn about the teachings of Ahlul Bayt. To expand the Shia network, Mariam hopes to provide a space for members of the Shia community to both learn and also exchange personal narratives. In her free time, Mariam enjoys doing physical exercise, watching sunsets, and spending time with her loved ones.
