BA degree in Biology and Nutrition from the University of Pennsylvania. Nia is completing the final few months of her M.S. degree in Nutrition at Columbia University. As a nutrition advisor Nia has aided in improving education materials by assessing the nutritional value of recipes for the mothers we work with. She became interested in the organization because it shares her vision of breaking the cycle of poverty through improved nutrition. Her experiences working with children in Ethiopia led her towards the path of studying nutrition, and working to improve the nutritional health of children and mothers by volunteering for N4ED is one way she hopes to give back.
