Nadia is currently a Senior attending Kalani High School with an interest in engineering. She has been interested in tinkering with technology from a young age, but did not realize it’s impact until she joined her high school robotics team (FRC Team 3008). By joining the team, she was able to expand and explore her opportunities for growth, not only personally, but to impact the community as a whole through various programs provided by FIRST, such as First Lego League, as well as the team’s personal outreach events such as Craft Fairs where they aim to inspire younger generations to get involved in STEM related fields. Since joining the team, her knowledge of not only tools, but in leadership and responsibility, has helped her to grow as an individual. She hopes to encourage those same learning and growth opportunities for students in her community as well. In the future, she plans to pursue a higher education in Biomedical Engineering so that she can further aid those in need by means of engineering.
