In 2012 Shadid was building a career as an analyst at McKinsey & Co. in Dubai when her close friend Malala Yousafzai was shot by the Taliban in Pakistan while traveling home from school. Shadid then quit her job to help run the Malala Fund, a New York-based nonprofit that aims to improve girls’ access to education. She says: “If Malala can survive, then the world can become a better place. We need innovators, doers, government, local leaders, nonprofits and large institutions to be involved. When you bring diverse groups with shared passions together, that’s when the magic happens.”
