Who am I?
Thanks for visiting my website.
My name's Nina, and I'm a teenager (as if I haven't said that many times already). The above question is one I ask myself every day, but I'll try to sum up my current answer.
I'm really passionate about lengthening human healthspan, which is the measure of how long we're healthy during our lifespan.
I realize that one of the biggest detriments to our healthspan is aging. So, I want to stop it, and by extension all the diseases that come with it (dementias, Parkinson's, cardiovascular diseases, etc).
I'm doing this through my work at Biotein, a startup I've been working on since April of 2019. If you want to find out more about my projects, you can find them here.
On that note, I figured I would mention my goals. I have quite a few and a lot of ideas on how to accomplish them.
- First, I want to cure brain aging. Our brains age, and this is a serious problem, leading to changes in thought, overall health, and causing many diseases. I want to stop this any way I can, whether it's more manual/volunteering based to engineering a solution. I'm trying to do both at the moment.
- Next, I want to stop the damage climate change is causing.. Climate change is destroying our planet. Simple as that. It's disheartening to see such an obvious issue becoming so politicized and denied, but despite that I want to do my best to stop it. I'm making an active effort to improve my own lifestyle for the environment, but I want to do something larger scale. That isn't something I'm working on at the moment, but it will be something I work on in the future.
- There are countless other issues I want to solve. I care deeply about homelessness, poverty, human rights, and more. You name it, I've probably put together an amateur plan to solve it. In the future, I want to be part of the population focusing on and solving these problems.
- Emailing if you have something to talk to me about/want to contact me privately.
- Subscribing to my newsletter if you want to keep up with what I'm doing.
- Probably not messaging me on LinkedIn/doing anything there because I never check it :(.
