Maryam is a Syrian refugee. She and her aunt fled their homes to avoid the ongoing war, where a bombing nearly took Maryam’s life. Her time in Canada has been short but positive. She’s doing very well in her recovery and her schooling (Maryam loves math) but being without her family has been a difficult and isolating experience for her.
In our effort to ease the stress of living away from home in a foreign country, Variety provided Maryam with a new iPad and Apple Pencil so that she could not only video chat with her family in Syria, but work on her writing, drawing, and continued learning in Manitoba.
Last month, Variety gifted Maryam with an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil so she could excel in her learning and reach out to her family back home in Syria. This is her story.
