About Sofia Gilani

Born and raised in Virginia, Sofia grew up experiencing all the nature the state has to offer. Due to her parents’ backgrounds, she also had the opportunity to experience nature in Pakistan and Nicaragua. This set the path for an appreciation of the outdoors. Sofia joined Green Muslims in the summer of 2019 as an intern and now holds a Bachelor of Science degree in environmental science. Professionally, she works mostly in compliance and regulation, as well as outreach and education. Sofia will be using her outreach and education skills, plus her passion for climate change advocacy to work with Green Muslims. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, kayaking, and snorkeling.
