Director Biography - Maria Abdirahman

Maria Abdirahman is Canadian Somalian, and now a third year Multimedia Design student at the American University of Sharjah. Never feeling like she truly belonged in either country, she turned to drawing, writing and film-making to create worlds that she belonged in.

She chose Multimedia as her discipline mostly for the film-making aspect, but also as a way to broaden her understanding on other forms of media, including animation, typography, web design and panoramas. She hopes to pursue a career in filmmaking, playwriting and screenwriting.
