Faduma Ahmed-Fido

Director of Student Development & Services

Faduma is passionate about public service and has worked in the non-profit sector since undergraduate studies. Faduma’s focus is in empowering young adults to navigate education, workforce, and home-ownership. Especially in the minority and migrant communities, there is a significant lack of pathways and community networks.

Faduma believe’s policy making is one of the most efficient ways to mitigate lack of resources for under-served communities. Faduma dedicates her time and knowledge to ADYA because quite frankly, our kids deserve the best of our actions and that is how progress is made.

Faduma has a Bachelor’s in Economics and English at the University of Washington. She is currently pursuing a Masters in Public Administration at Seattle University.
