Maryam Sayid is a Marketing Strategist with a passion for communication. After managing and writing a newsletter at Arts Network, she became intrigued with storytelling through creative direction, writing and marketing. She then used that passion to found ciyaalsuuqs on Instagram where she features products of longstanding cultural desire. Maryam knows what truly drives conversations is how well you connect with the heart-beating people you’re trying to help, communicating your understanding back to them and further audiences. Maryam was motivated to join SAW Video in order to pursue her passion for communications and independence of expression in the Ottawa arts community. Maryam is currently studying Communication, Media and Business at Carleton University.
