Nitza is a sophomore from Chico, CA majoring in History with a minor in Creative Writing. Two of her most memorable experiences during her time at the UA include completing the First Year Honors Project in which she studied youth memories of Soviet-era propaganda, and serving as a summer camp counselor for Camp Wildcat. The first year project has helped her establish meaningful relationships with faculty and learn what the steps of research can look like. Serving as a camp counselor has given her a sense of community and friendship that is unmatched in any other experience. In her spare time, Nitza likes to listen to music, watch movies, go camping, and relax in nature with good company.
