Mariam Daudi came to the US at the age of five with her family as a refugee of war from Afghanistan during the Soviet-Afghan war. After living in Pakistan for two years they received asylum in the US and moved to Kansas City, Kansas. Two years later they settled down in Upland, a suburb of Los Angeles, where Mariam's father worked as a small business owner.
Mariam studied anthropology at Scripps College in Claremont, California. She attended a Transcendental Meditation introductory lecture while in college—but didn't begin practicing it until later, when she needed help coping with the stress of the business world.
A few months after learning the TM technique she attended a Visitors Weekend at Maharishi University of Management and decided to enroll. ''My undergraduate school was very stressful, so I wanted something different, and I also wanted a graduate degree.''
Mariam chose MUM's MBA program and graduated in 2008. After working for MUM's Admissions Department and a couple of Fairfield businesses, she became project manager at the Maharishi Foundation. Eighteen months later she attended the Transcendental Meditation Teacher Training Course and, since February 2014, has been teaching the TM program at the Madison Avenue Transcendental Meditation Center in Manhattan (New York). . . .
As the only Afghan teacher in the world, Mariam hopes to teach the Transcendental Meditation program in Afghanistan some day and inspire others in the country to become teachers as well.
