Nabila joined Empower Me in 2019 as the Manager of Sponsorship and Partnership Development. She was initially drawn to Empower Me as it brought together her two passions, equitable education and environmental conservation. And, in her current role, she focuses securing meaningful partnerships that positively impact these two areas.
Nabila completed her undergraduate degree in History and Humanities at Simon Fraser University. She then went on to complete her Master’s Degree in History and Politics at The University of Oxford.
Immediately prior to joining Empower Me, Nabila worked as a regional director for a charity focused on equitable access to education. In this capacity, her focus was relationship management and fund procurement. In the six years before that, Nabila worked across the Middle East and North Africa developing donor funded programming around community development. In particular, her focus was on programming for underserved populations. Having designed and evaluated United Nations, USAID, UNICEF and federal government programming, Nabila has significant experience securing and maintaining strong partnerships.
