Education and early life
Mariah was raised in Atlanta by her mother and father, however, because she respects their privacy, nothing is known about them; it’s also believed that she doesn’t have siblings, as she hasn’t spoken of any.
Mariah grew up being interested in singing, and took singing and dancing lessons while attending Southwest DeKalb High School; she lived in Decatur, Georgia during those four years so that she would be closer to the school. Mariah matriculated in 2015, a year earlier than her peers, and she then enrolled at New York City’s St. John’s University on a biology scholarship; her plan was to become an anesthetist, however, she eventually dropped out of college wanting to pursue music.
Career as a singer
Mariah was still attending elementary school when she fell in love with singing, having discovered it after being invited by one of her teachers to join the school’s chorus, and it was while attending St. John’s University that she began writing songs.
She chose to use the professional name ‘Mariah the Scientist’, because of her genuine love for science.
Mariah’s debut extended play (EP) “To Die For” was released in January 2018 on SoundCloud; it comprised six songs and attracted some attention. The EP was noticed by popular Canadian rapper and singer-songwriter Daystar Shemuel Shua Peterson, better known by his professional name Tory Lanez, and he invited Mariah to tour with him. Tory served as her mentor, and in February 2019 signed her to his labels RCA Records and One Umbrella Records.
