                 Co-Founder/Executive Director 

Meymuna is spiritual and family oriented.  She is passionate about refugee/immigrant work because of her personal experience of being born in a refugee camp and witnessing how long it took her parents to feel at home in America.  Her intention is to make it easier for other families like hers while making sure that employees at Tiyya are taken care of.  Meymuna received her Master’s degree in Organizational Management and loves researching and implementing new ways of developing a vibrant workplace culture.  She is team-centric and loves working with Jasmine and Laura!

Quote she lives by: “Learning is not a spectator sport.”- D. Blocher

Where she hopes to be in the next few years:  "We’ve built a successful model in Orange County and now my goal is to expand Tiyya into Los Angeles and San Diego Counties.  I’m excited to incorporate a social enterprise model and wellness,  as a way of ensuring sustainability for the families we serve." - Meymuna
