NaBeela Washington
Communications Manager

Ever since the age of six, NaBeela Washington knew poetry and storytelling would be central to her life. That’s why, after 5 years of supporting an array of non-profits with branding, outreach awareness, and community-focused marketing, NaBeela is thrilled to join 826CHI as Communications Manager, where her love for literature, education, and communications, can intersect. She received her Bachelor of Visual Advertising at The University of Alabama at Birmingham and currently pursues a Masters in English & Creative Writing at Southern New Hampshire University. When she’s not immersed in community initiatives or counting characters, you can find her managing a literary journal, polishing her green thumb, cooking Southern staples, writing poetry, or traveling.
