Nadira received her undergraduate degree from George Mason University in Neuroscience with a minor in psychology. After graduating she worked in a lab for a few years. In January of 2015, she volunteered at the Mosby Court Resource Center in Richmond Virginia and discovered her passion for public health. Nadira says, "VCU has awarded me with so many opportunities. I have loved being able to do my internship, practicum, and service learning with different organizations in the city. I would recommend VCU to anyone because having a small classroom size has allowed me to be able to succeed as a student. I have also been able to build relationships with others in my cohort."
