Maria is deeply passionate about women’s issues. In college, she worked on many projects with Amnesty International to raise awareness for women's rights.
In addition to all her work for disadvantaged women in the States, Pakistani women hold a special place in Maria’s heart. Born in Bahawalpur, Punjab, Maria has seen, first hand, the struggles of Pakistani women: lack of opportunity and education, abuse, and mistreatment. Maria hopes that, through Popinjay, she can make a difference in the lives of these brave and beautiful women.
Besides supporting women’s rights internationally, Maria loves fashion, travel (especially to Pakistan!), and spending time with her nephews.
