Maryam Gunja, Product Manager

ioby caught Maryam’s eye while she was working as the community manager with the civic engagement nonprofit, The Participatory Politics Foundation. “ioby was always within our orbit,” Maryam explains, “ I was always really interested in ioby's mission to prioritize small scale interventions with an impressive success rate with communities of color and low income communities. I think it’s incredibly important to tap into the needs of communities by deferring to citizen expertise. Under her bed, Maryam keeps a collection of unfinished written vignettes, which she peeks through regularly in her free time. On weekends she can be found running loops in Prospect Park’s interior, sleeping through a low-budget dystopian film, or hanging out with her niece.
