Born and raised in the Bay Area, Nadia attended San Francisco State University and became the first in her family to graduate college. Her parents are immigrants from the Philippines, who chose to come to America to start a business to support the elderly, fueling her passion to help others. During her senior year of college, she was a JusticeCorps intern for the Hayward Hall of Justice, where she helped 309 self-represented litigants that are trying to resolve crucial legal matters affecting their family, housing, personal safety, and financial stability. During her winter break, she also interned for the Judicial Council’s Public Affairs team to assist with Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye’s program to educate children (K-12) about the Judicial Branch. Nadia plans to continue her education to pursue law in the near future.
In her free time, she enjoys hiking, spending time with friends and family, and exploring food from different countries.
