Maggie Nazer began her “career” as a social entrepreneur when she was only 9 years old, and organized charity campaigns for a sick boy from her neighborhood. In the 9th grade she founded a youth-led nonprofit to promote volunteering, and empower her peers through multicultural exchange. This and other first experiences of solidarity convinced her that it is never too early and you are never too young to make a difference. 

 

Maggie has been in charge of tens of international projects, and has represented Bulgaria as a youth delegate at many world forums (incl. the World Bank Youth Summit, UN Global Youth Forum, etc.)

 

In 2017 Maggie graduated Magna cum Laude from Middlebury college (VT, USA) with a degree in sociology after receiving a full-ride scholarship and countless merit awards.

 

During her studies Maggie organized educational and research projects in Palestine, Jordan, Sierra Leone, and interned with UNDP Jordan and a consulting firm in NYC. She has experience in marketing and sales, but her true passions are education and social change.
