Maryam Zar

About Me: 

I am the Founder of Womenfound, Inc. (see womenfound.org) which raises money for charities and foundations that help women around the world. Womenfound also has an advocacy website: "The Voice of Womenfound" at www.womenfound.org. Womenfound addresses issues affecting women around the globe, in order to raise awareness.

I am an Iranian-born American. I have JD (Juris Doctorate) and BS (Bachelor of Sciences) from Boston University. I was a correspondent for The Gulf Marketing Review (GMR) and MEED Magazine (Middle East Economic Digest) in the 1990's. In late 1999 I started a small business which grew in scope and led me to the founding of Womenfound in 2010.
My writing can be seen at womenfound.org as well as at more.com (e magazine) and the examiner.com where I recently became the charitable giving writer. I would like to join your team in any meaningful way. There are so many areas of synergy that I can see between Womenfound (small) and world pulse (large).

Thanks and best, Maryam Zar, JD.
