Nyla Russell is a junior from Brooklyn, NY, attending Arcadia University as a business administration major with a concentration in management. Nyla is a multi-business owner, working in retail, graphic design, virtual assistance, and a travel agency. Soon, she hopes to own a non-profit organization with the objective of assisting in the integration of exonerees into our current society as well as assistance with obtaining their time spent wrongfully incarcerated. To say that Nyla is disciplined is an understatement, being a vegetarian and animal activist for 10 years has given her the resilience to always be able to adapt and go with the flow. Nyla has a love for learning, leading, and inspiring others to reach their best self. In her free time, she enjoys listening to music, spending time with friends and family, organizing events for her clubs, and watching movies. Nyla believes that no one person is all-knowing, we are all lifelong learners and perspective is our greatest friend.
