Aisha Shah joins Spitfire with a passion for education, commitment to social impact, and an interest in effective philanthropy. As Spitfire’s Outreach and Impact Coordinator for AndACTION, she connects nonprofits to important issues reflected in film and TV.

Prior to joining Spitfire, she was an Impact Fellowship with YES Prep Public Schools in Houston, Texas.

In this role, Aisha supported initiatives ranging from early childhood education to college access and adult learning.
