Class of 2019
Nada Shaaban was born and raised in Boston. She is a Junior Communication Arts major with a concentration in Integrated Visual Media. She chose FSU because of the small campus environment, cost efficiency for both her and her family, and the education curriculum. Nada loves film, theatre, photography, visual arts, and really just anything having to do with art and creativity. On campus, she takes on many roles such as being a RAM Ambassador, and a member of Hilltop, FSU’s theatre organization. She is currently the on E-Board as the Technical Chair, as well as up for stage-managing this year’s upcoming productions. Nada works at the FSU bookstore while on campus, (come say hi!). But at home, she works as a production apprentice at Company One Theatre. Apart from art, Nada is also a PLUS Mentor for first year students, as she has formally been in PLUS herself, during her freshmen year. Nada is also a part of the Honors Program and the Alpha Lambda Delta: National Honor Society on campus; she enjoys being challenged inside and outside the classroom, which is why she appreciates FSU’s desire to provide students with resources to succeed. Nada has many goals for the future, but importantly, she hopes to influence equality, acceptance, justice, and camaraderie through her many mediums of art, as she hopes to innovatively, make a difference through education and creativity in minority and urban communities.
