About Shaily Hakimian:

Shaily’s social media journey started in high school when her online reality competition shows needed an online hub for activities. She ran that hub as a Myspace group, crafting her social media skills long before the term was coined.

As a first-generation American of Moroccan and Iranian heritage, Shaily loves connecting with people, figuring out who they are and what they care about. The reason is why she gravitated to social media and teaching. Shaily earned her teaching degree from Indiana University and has used her skills in various capacities, including facilitating her workshops and incorporating technology into the classroom.

Shaily is an optimistic person who is continuously looking for win-win opportunities for friends, students, and clients. She helps people represent themselves using social media to re-engage their social networks at scale. Everything Shaily does in life, both online and offline, is about empowering others by creating connections.
