Nadia is an undergraduate student at UC Berkeley with a passion for youth mental health advocacy. In 2016, she founded the 501c3 nonprofit TeenzTalk after her own experience with aiding in the prevention of her close friend's suicide.

TeenzTalk empowers youth voice, focusing on education and open conversation to fight the stigma around mental health. In 2017, Nadia spearheaded TeenzTalk's first-annual Teen Wellness Conference in Santa Clara County, bringing together 220 youth from 88 schools and 15 counties in California.

Nadia also plays an active role in various mental health advisory boards and committees in the community, including Children’s Health Council, Stanford Center for Youth Mental Health & Wellbeing, and One Love Foundation.

Nadia most enjoys meeting people and hearing their stories.
