Niala is the newest addition to the YouthForce team, and joined us in March of 2016. She was born and raised in Slovenia, former Yugoslavia and moved to the U.S. after graduating with a BA in Anthropology and Cultural Studies. She spent her childhood traipsing across Europe with her archaeologist parents, practicing five languages, and studying fine arts, contemporary dance, and classical guitar. She is dedicated to youth-related jobs and volunteer work, including 2 years of teaching with an emphasis on language and behavioral management. In her spare time, Niala enjoys drawing, painting, taking pictures, and creating collages. Her love for working towards a good cause has led her to YouthForce, and she is excited to be a part of the team!
