A tale of a super power

Dear friends,

It’s been a journey.  It’s been a lifetime.  It’s been 29 days. 

Yes, it’s been 29 days since I launched Agent GirlPower, my feminist fashion label.  I have learned so much in that time. Lessons that I could never have learned in any class or at any school.  It’s been a crash course in the best and worst of me.  It’s been a tale of anticipation and perseverance.  It’s been thrilling. But it’s also been disappointing.  I have seen such generosity from so, so many, and for that I am forever grateful.  But the truth is that the road ahead of me is long.  Am I smart enough? Am I capable enough to make this work? 

It’s the very last hours of my Kickstarter campaign for Agent GirlPower.  I would still love your support!  Please consider clicking over  and seeing the feminist apparel on offer.  If not for you, perhaps for your daughter, friend, or colleague?  Or perhaps for your boyfriend or husband (the Equality Hoodie is unisex!)?  You can see it all right here

With love,

Maryam in Marrakech

And I was standing there almost naked, outside on a dock in the middle of Lake Geneva.  As you might remember from last year, each year I choose a single word to guide me - like a New Year's resolution distilled to its very essence.  The word for 2016 is....


Marrakesh, Morocco: and a tale of what I am reading, watching and listening to

I'm a passionate reader (and was a literature major in school).  Here are a few books I've found worthwhile: 

Entertaining and eye opening:

I'm an obsessive podcast listener.  Here are some of my current favorites:
