Originally from Kabul, Afghanistan, Mariam Mustafa now considers the DC metro area home. After years of volunteer work and assisting with a variety of different events, she found her passion in hospitality. This led Mariam to her role as managing partner at Uniq Engaging Events, a full-service event company based out of Northern Virginia, serving the VA/DC/MD area. Additionally, in efforts to share her love of food with others, she started iCater.menu. She also recently began her new firm, Events by Mariam! Mariam is looking forward to the Innovation Summit. When she’s not working, Mariam can be found playing with her three-year-old son, Cyrus.
