As the Founder of We Got Us, Nash is helping empower Black community members with accurate science information and public health resources. She is also a vocal activist, having built a platform and social following through her speaking and writing about healthcare inequality.
Nash was born and raised in Compton, California to a single mother. She told Teen Vogue:
“Compton made me scrappy. I’m hungry for opportunity, I’m hungry for justice, I’m hungry to see my people win. So, when you put someone like me at a place like HMS, I’m going to do whatever it takes to make that vision a reality.”
