Amia Nash- Miss Silicon Valley

Hi! My name is Amia Nash and I am your Miss Silicon Valley 2018. I’m excited to share with you about my platform of stopping the stigma and mental health advocacy! My passion for mental health advocacy began with my personal experience, and it is something I have dedicated my academic work to. I am a graduate of Stanford University School of Medicine where I studied Community Health and Preventive Medicine. In this vlog, I share with you a little bit about the research I did with Stanford Center for Youth Mental Wellness focused on adolescent mental health, as well as, the research I am currently doing as a Health Science Specialist with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. Check out the Miss Silicon Valley Instagram or Facebook page to learn about Stanford Medicine and Lucile Packard’s Children Hospital’s Adolescent Mental Wellness Conference this April, where I will be a guest speaker and leading the community’s conversation on overcoming cultural barriers to access.
