Nia Campinha-Bacote

Nia was born and raised in the wonderful city of Cincinnati, Ohio, and after living in one place for 18 years, decided she was ready for change.  In 2011, Nia moved to Providence, Rhode Island to attend Brown University where she concentrated in Health and Human Biology with a focus on race and ethnic disparities in health and disease.  In addition to becoming President of Brown University's Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship, Nia is also very proud of the fact that she is one of the co-founders of Brown's first Karaoke Club.  After graduating in 2015, Nia took a leap of faith and decided to join staff with Chi Alpha at Yale instead of pursuing medical school.  This was one of the hardest yet most rewarding decisions of her life, and Nia is beyond excited to be partnering with Jesus in the Kingdom work being done here at Yale!

Favorite Hobby: Bursting out into Disney songs at all times of the day.
Favorite Movie: Moana.  Seriously.  If you haven't seen it, go watch it.  It will CHANGE. YOUR. LIFE.
