“You can never leave footprints that last if you are always walking on tiptoes.” -Leymah Gbowee

My days of tiptoeing are over and I am making my mark on the world. My name is Marya Firdausi Kazmi and I am a first-generation Bangladeshi- Pakistani American born and raised in Maryland. I am a proud and at times struggling, mother of four children ranging from a twenty-year-old to a young toddler at the tail end.


I started writing and sharing the journey of my story in April of 2020 after leaving a seventeen year emotionally abusive marriage to a manipulative man. I know my story of embarking on change, balancing children, leaving a marriage, and entering the abyss of the dating pool is familiar to many. I love and get hurt. I take risks and fall. I learn and I grow. Now, I am inviting you to join me on this adventure of discovery, reflection and growth.
