Sophia Kizilbash (F’03)

Co-Director, Native Youth Leadership Alliance
Owner, Sophia Kizilbash Coaching

In 2009, Sophia Kizilbash and a core group of elders and young leaders from Tribal Colleges set out to create a national Native American–led organization rooted in indigenous approaches to leadership and community change. As a founding co-director of Native Youth Leadership Alliance (NYLA), her extensive international development experience plays a key role in the organization’s work to support young Native American social entrepreneurs. While a student in the School of Foreign Service, she always knew that she wanted to focus on international development. Since then, her work has allowed her to partner with urban and rural communities in the United States, Jamaica, United Kingdom, Malaysia and the Philippines. True to the entrepreneurial culture of Georgetown, Kizilbash also has her own business, Sophia Kizilbash Coaching and the South Asian Sisterhood, offering leadership coaching services. “I became a coach because I experienced its power in my own life and leadership, and am passionate to share the impact of the coaching partnership with leaders at the front lines of community change,” she said.
