Before coming to AchieveMpls, Miriam worked in the Career Center at Macalester College and also served on the Project Success communications team. She's excited to do this work because she believes that all youth should have equitable access to opportunities and information that will help them plan for their futures. Also because high schoolers are funny!
Miriam grew up in Egypt and Abu Dhabi and moved to Minnesota – where her Mom is from – for college. She graduated from Macalester College with a degree in international studies and a minor in media and culture studies.
A fun fact about Miriam is that she recently ate her way through Europe and Morocco for three months as part of a research project on food and immigration. Her favorite activities are cooking, reading, and playing the oud.
