About the Host

Najia Lupson

Host, Producer, and Editor

I want to leave this world better than I found it, it's the thing that drives me most. I've worked in government, large corporations and nonprofits and I believe in the collective power of our voices. I also believe we have a duty to be stewards of our natural world for current and future generations.

I'm a daughter of South Asian, Muslim immigrants, a wife, a mom to a biracial toddler who has already overcome major health challenges, a passionate education leader and a pro at change. In my 30s, I had an early "mid-life awakening" and it prompted a huge change, from working in global brand strategy at Microsoft to moving into education.

My journey over the last several years has revealed my strength to get through really tough times, my love of deep conversation, and my aspiration to live in harmony with people and the planet.

As the host of the Education ReMade podcast, I get the opportunity to do many of these, often.

And I hope the pod inspires you, makes you think and hopefully even makes you laugh sometimes :)
