Meet Maryam

  • Speaks English and Spanish

Hi! My name is Maryam Jawid and I am a freshman at the University of Miami. I graduated high school as valedictorian and am now pursing a degree in Public Health while running Division 1 cross country and track. With experience as a camp counselor, swim instructor, and lifeguard, I am prepared to not only ensure your children's safety, but engage them with fun activities and creativity. In addition, I am CPR and first aid certified, and even volunteer to teach basic aid classes for the American Red Cross. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

Maryam did a great job. She played with my seven year old and was very responsible. She kept in touch and updated us regularly. I will definitely ask her to sit again soon.

Maryam arrived early and immediately made a connection with my kids --even my shy 2-year-old. They did some arts and crafts, and she left my home neater than she found it.

She had instant rapport with Mila and made us feel comfortable as well. She did a great job when Mila had a rough time going to sleep and kept us updated on how that was going. She also picked up and cleaned Mila's dishes which was a nice bonus. Great job!
