Daisy Kabaka


Daisy Kabaka graduated from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology of Law, Criminology, and Deviance with a policy analysis focus; she also minored in African-American and African studies.

Daisy is involved with the Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Committee (MIRAC), a local grassroots organization, and she was also a fellow with UNIDOS MN (formerly known as NAVIGATE MN) from 2018-19. Daisy’s education and activism has allowed her to understand the complexities of this world, and given her the courage to stand up and speak up for the “least of us.”

The words of Maya Angelou motivate and focus Daisy in advocating for human rights. They read, “I come as one, but stand as 10,000.” Her faith and trust in God also gives her peace in a world riddled with chaos. Her favorite Bible verse comes from Genesis 50: 20 and it says, “You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good…”

Daisy assists both Brian Aust and Malinda Schmiechen with file preparation. She answers incoming calls and directs the caller in the right direction. She enjoys meeting clients and their families.
