Congratulations Jilla Nadimi!
Growing up as an immigrant, Jilla found her community to be an essential resource. Throughout her youth, Girl Scouts nurtured this passion as she earned her Gold Award. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Minnesota in French and Global Studies, she continues to build community both at home and abroad. Currently, as a Monitoring & Evaluation Officer for the American Refugee Committee, she supports field teams in providing aid to refugees and internally displaced persons in countries including Rwanda, Somalia, and Syria. Through her involvement with the St. Paul Winter Carnival she will expand her community service locally and proudly represent the city she loves. A fun fact: she once rode her bicycle from St. Paul to Duluth and fell even deeper in love with Minnesota along the way.
