The Maidelle Team
Founder & Editor – Nina Safar Growing up with eight sisters Nina understands the importance of the feminine voice. As a teen she was frustrated with the lack of opportunity there was to speak her mind in a stimulating environment. She decided to create a space for girls to connect and talk. Where they would find comfort and validation in the fact that they are not alone. Where they would be heard. This is that space.

Dalia Wolfson is a junior at Hunter College High School. She is a bookworm living in the Big Apple, which means that her favorite haunts are the Strand, that sanctum between the two lions (their names are Patience and Fortitude, by the way), the Great Lawn and small coffee stores with quality jazz and worn leather couches. Dalia is an editor of several school newspapers, as well as a freelance writer for TDF, High5 and a UK-based music magazine which sends her obscure songs that she listens to on her determinedly-non-Apple mp3 player. In her spare time, Dalia likes converting her squiggles and doodles into stories, Zumba dancing, reading about foreign affairs and sketching with charcoal.
