Hailing from Newburgh, a city in a continuous struggle with youth violence, Nish deepens her commitment to the possibilities of social transformation through the arts, by designing and implementing programs to address gang activity, bullying and self determination. Nish works in partnership with the Department of Education to put these programs into action, she is often a guest speaker at youth events, and has recently broadened her reach to working with NYC cultural institutions such as the Queens Museum and Sugar Hill Children's Museum of Art & Storytelling. Her goal is to make clear the potential to bring your dreams to reality and break down boundaries of environmental limitations while pursuing your passion. You hear this message in her music, and you see it in the work she accomplishes with youth.
