About Nadia and Sean
Nadia Mitchell and Sean Feeney are founders of Be Bold. Nadia graduated from North Dakota State University and received a degree in Business Administration and a minor in Entrepreneurship. Nadia loves to read, and she actually has a goal of reading 200 books this year! She is currently on book number 112! Sean graduated from Concordia College and he likes to collect glass jars. Nadia enjoys going to work every day because she is super passionate about helping the underserved and underrepresented communities, specifically homeless youth and foster care kids. She expands, “They deserve to have lives filled with hope and joy.
Their circumstances are not their fault and should not be held against them. They deserve to have every adult in this world working to help them be successful but instead they become invisible. So, I am working for them to be seen. Lastly, having Sean as a partner in this journey has been a fun time.” Sean’s favorite part of going to work is working towards a solution that he believes can truly create change and impact within local communities. He also shares another great part of this business venture is working with Nadia.
