My country (Saudi Arabia) has put in place its 2030 vision, which focuses on several fields of study, including risk management and insurance. The Saudi university gave me a scholarship and asked me to travel abroad and specialize in this major. Working at a university has given me the opportunity to study this fascinating and important major, for which I will always be very grateful. I chose to continue my master's degree and PhD in the UK because it has great expertise in this field, and the University of Southampton has a high ranking among other universities. It is a leading university in risk management, which will allow me to stay up-to-date with all the new developments in this field. I am very keen to learn about this field in more detail. I realised that there is a lack of Arabic information about risk management, which led me to take up the responsibility of writing one article a month in the Maal newspaper. It is very important that people are being made aware of many aspects of risk management, and this has motivated me to study for a PhD in such a great university. I am sure that this will help me to inform others about risk management in the future.

Maryam has a bachelor’s degree in accounting from King Faisal University and a master’s degree in risk management from the University of Southampton. Maryam has obtained certified fellowship with the Saudi Organisation for Certified Public Accountants (SOCPA) and has several years of experience working in accounting and auditing. Maryam previously won the Prince Mohammed Bin Fahd Reward for Scientific Excellence, and she also has experience of teaching accounting and finance at the Al Ahsa Chamber.
