About – Nadia Berriel Miranda
Nadia Berriel Miranda was born in Mexico City but calls Chicago her home. She grew up on the Northwest Side, leading her to attend Noble’s Pritzker College Prep Campus for high school. Nadia attended Macalester College in Minnesota where she received her B.A in Applied Mathematics and Statistics and became the first in her family to attend and graduate college. After graduating, she began to work as a programmer but felt unfulfilled. Volunteering with various grassroots organizations in the Twin Cities pushed her to pursue her real interests and in politics and community organizing full-time. As a first generation Latina immigrant, Nadia’s parents believed that Noble’s work of college access and success would be the catalyst for positive multigenerational change for her family. Nadia wants this to be true for thousands of families that look like hers across Chicago, which is why she returned back home in the summer of 2021 and started working for Noble’s Government and Community Affairs as a bilingual community organizer. Nadia is unapologetic and uncompromising about protecting and upholding the stories of BIPOC communities.
