Trisha is both humbled and honored to be entering the second year of her term as the President of NABS! Originally from Dayton, Ohio, she ventured out from the Midwest to California, where she is currently a senior at Stanford University, studying Computer Science with a minor in Creative Writing. In her free time, you can find Trisha working out at the gym, taking a deep dive into her Spotify recommendations, or getting boba with her friends and family. Given the experience of losing her vision unexpectedly before the start of high school and finding the National Federation of the Blind as a 2018 national scholarship recipient, Trisha is firmly rooted in the philosophy that gaining independence and refining oneself are both ongoing journeys, unique to each person. Yet, she wholeheartedly believes that the magic of our student division is for everyone! Trisha is inspired daily by the power of collective knowledge in this organization, and she welcomes any student or ally to reach out with any questions, concerns, or ideas about the work that we do.
