Hi! I'm Shaleila

👋🏽 Hi! I'm Shaleila.

I'm a Product Manager at The Atlantic. I hail from Mumbai and Singapore, but currently live in Washington, D.C. I'm a creative at heart and love to design, create, and optimize. Design thinking, people-centric strategy, and the clever use of digital media fascinate me.

I recently graduated from Northwestern University, where I studied Learning and Organizational Change, Psychology, and Integrated Marketing Communications. I worked with and IBM Watson for Education to help develop a cognitive tutor to benefit students through the power of AI, and spent my time at Northwestern building connections with Northwestern alumni with the Department of Alumni Relations and Development. Last summer, I had a fabulous time interning with the Sales and Marketing teams at the BORN Group in NYC. I also make music in my free time, and try to keep up with the latest in cinema. Talk to me about soccer, pop culture, or John Mulaney's comedy!
