Meet the Team

Hello Neighbor is a collective and community effort. We are a small but mighty team! In addition to our staff, we have a committed group of interpreters, contractors, photographers, friends, fellows, interns and more that help us do what we do. We couldn’t do this work without everyone’s collaborative effort, including the dedicated mentors, mentees, and volunteers in our programs.

Our Hello Neighbor staff are from 13 different countries including: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Colombia, China, Iraq, India, Ireland, Kenya, Mexico, Rwanda, Syria, Ukraine, United States. Combining each staff’s language expertise, there are a total of 26 different languages that are present among our talents.

She was a 2009 Kiva Fellow in the Philippines and has been invited to speak on her activism at The Clinton Global Initiative and The World Economic Forum.
