Nina grew up in Kailua, Hawaii before moving to Colorado at the age of 11. She had a brief encounter with Rachel as they attended youth group together and had mutual friends. After graduating college from Colorado Christian University came a great deal of passion and pursuit. When a door opened to speak for Rachel's Challenge, Nina never knew that a 12 year old encounter would lead to picking up Rachel's torch of luminous character. As a presenter, Nina is looking forward to challenging young people to be an influence that's out of the ordinary and into extraordinary.
