Navaal Mahdi
Assistant Executive Director

Navaal Mahdi was born and raised in Vaughn, ON, Canada, and moved to Maryland in 2010. She attended high school in Montgomery County and graduated with her B.A. in Media & Communication Studies from University of Maryland, Baltimore County, in 2017.

Navaal currently lives in Carroll County with her husband, Taimur, and son, Esa. She loves reading and writing, but with a toddler running around after her, she spends most of her time outdoors or creating activities for him that don’t always go as planned. You’ll find her and Esa listening to podcasts or nursery rhymes (depending on the day).

In the summer of 2018, Navaal found her way to MSATP and she is now the Assistant Executive Director. If you would like to get in touch with Navaal, you can email her at
