Meet Our Newest Team Member: Fridaouss Nabine

My name is Fridaouss Nabine, and I am excited to join The Graide Network as a Sales Associate!

Some fun facts about me:

  1. I was born in Togo, a small coastal country in West Africa.

  2. I experienced snow for the first time at the age of 8, when I moved to Chicago with my family.

  3. I did stand-up comedy in college at The University of Southern California, and still perform on very rare occasions. (These days, you’ll usually find me in the crowd!)

What am I most excited about working in education?

My passion for education was spurred in high school when I learned of the dismal college graduation rate of Chicago Public Schools graduates. Since then, I have been motivated to work in the education sector. This passion led me to work at STEM Prep Schools in Los Angeles, and it brings me here to the Graide Network. As a Sales Associate, I look forward to supporting all things sales and marketing as we quickly grow in the coming school years.

What are some of my future goals?

I am passionate about expanding access to quality education for students at the Graide Network and beyond. In the future I hope to design programs that streamline economic mobility for young women by providing resources and teaching them entrepreneurial skills. After accumulating a wealth of knowledge and experiences, I hope to one day open schools in my hometown of Lome, Togo.

I am thrilled to be joining The Graide Network team as we embark on this new and exciting year of growth and impact, and I am excited to help scale our mission of providing powerful educational through excellent feedback for all students.
