Professional Bio

Nia is a fourth-year student majoring in Psychology and Women’s Studies with a minor in Child Maltreatment and Advocacy Studies. She is from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Nia is president of Hope Here Hope Now, which is Penn State’s only student-run human trafficking awareness organization. As a first-generation student, Nia really enjoys the endless opportunities available in the College of the Liberal Arts.

“During the first half of my second year, I experienced a lot of change that I navigated myself through, and those changes helped me learn how to make executive decisions regarding my own college journey. Also, being a first-year student during the pandemic made me figure things out on my own, and therefore, I feel when it comes to navigating Penn State in person or online, I have a pretty good understanding already.”
