Nadia Mahmud is the co-founder of Jolkona. She is passionate about philanthropy and making a global impact and is excited about allowing others to do so easily and effectively through micro-donations through Jolkona’s unique approach to giving. Prior to starting Jolkona, she worked in the nonprofit sector in Los Angeles promoting social entrepreneurship and financial literacy to inner city youth. She is passionate about nutrition and development so after learning about the day-to-day operations of running a nonprofit for two years, she went back to graduate school and studied Public Health and nutrition while running Jolkona in the evenings. Nadia graduated from UCLA with a bachelor’s degree in business/economics and a minor in public policy, and has a master’s degree in public health and nutrition from the University of Washington. In her spare time, she works on global health nutrition research projects, travels, and mentors others interested in nutrition or the nonprofit space.
