You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. – Martin Luther King

Nnali is a vibrant young lady from Toronto, Ontario. Her interests include cooking, gardening, and caring for others.

Nnali has past experience in community-based research (CCBR) through her involvement with the Assets Coming Together (ACT) for Youth project where she was a student in their CBR summer program. She went on to co-chair a conference that explored the importance of youth in research as more than subjects, and the non-traditional ways that youth can conduct their own research.

Nnali is the third of four children. She is kind-hearted, generous, and enjoys quiet time spent with herself.
