Hi! I'm Nishaa Sharma.

I am a twenty-year-old student majoring in Strategic Communications. After graduating high school when I was sixteen, I decided to take a year off before college in order to travel. During my gap year, I visited Costa Rica, Australia, and New Zealand, and discovered my passion for travel, service, making a difference, and telling stories along the way. I believe that citizenship and community go beyond city, state, and country borders and we're all members of one global community.

When I'm not going to class or on the road, I also act for film and television, and I am a free diver who is passionate about marine conservation and raising awareness of the beauty and fragility of our ocean's ecosystems. My dream is to see as much of the world as I can, to tell the stories of the people I meet along  the way, and to ultimately inspire and empower other young women to travel and pursue their goals, no matter what they are.
