Maryam Masoomi was the leader of a music group, Sound of Afghanistan, which featured young women singing about girl power, education, peace, and women empowerment. Less than a year ago, Maryam and her group fled Afghanistan when the Taliban took control. After several hectic months, they landed safely in Saskatoon. Now, Maryam is working as a youth facilitator at the Saskatoon Open Door Society and is the host of Kabul Jan, a show that showcases Afghan music to Saskatoon residents on CFCR on Sunday morning at 7a.m. On this week's Global Voice, Maryam shares her journey to Canada and her goals and ambitions for the future.
