Nia’s Purpose

nia hinkson 2

Nia Hinkson has been living the true meaning of her name: purpose. Nia was born in Brooklyn, New York to Guyanese parents. From the onset, it was obvious that her curiosity would  take her places. She read voraciously. This curiosity for learning led to a full scholarship to attend St. Andrews School, a private boarding school in Delaware. Not only did she excel academically, she was a gifted athlete, artist, writer and community activist. That same curiosity led Nia to her love of languages and she honed in on Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese, all of which she now speaks fluently.

 

In 2012, Nia graduated from Mt. Holyoke College with double majors in Cultural Anthropology and Asian Studies. She plans to study international law, but, in the meantime, she lives in Wuxi, China, where she prepares advanced level Chinese high school students for academic opportunities in the US and helps immerse them in the American cultural norm. When asked what she loves most about the work she is currently doing – we are not at all surprised by her response “everything”!
