Assalam Alaikum - I am Maryam. I was born and raised in Pakistan. Lived there for 8 years after which my family moved to Middle East. I lived in that region for 12 years before I moved to United States to pursue my higher education after completing my A-levels.
In 2012 I completed my Bachelors in Culinary Arts and Food Services Management. Currently I am working in Dallas as a Chef and live with with my elder brother.
I am generally a happy person; love to laugh and more so make others laugh around me. I am currently working as a pastry chef. I love to read mostly fiction. I would describe myself as a fairly level headed person and I like to see the good in people. Simple things can make me happy such as the color of leaves in fall, the scent of freshly ground coffee or just a good conversation.
i strongly believe in the balance of deen and duniya although I am a work in progress; I dress modestly and try my hardest to pray 5 times a day. I am an avid believer that I can have the best of both worlds (family and career).
I'm looking for a simple person who harbours in himself respect for others, A person with a genuinely witty sense of humour who i can talk to, relate to. Someone i can be myself with. I would like my partner to be the hand that high-five's me when im happy and holds my hand when im not.
May Allah (SWT) take things where they are meant to be with the happiness of all and guide all of us as we try to find suitable matches, Ameen.
