Nina G is a comedian and professional speaker. Every few months she chooses a nonprofit to highlight on social media and donate a portion of her speaking fees to. Since August she has raised month for the Parent Education Network to bring awareness to Ed Rev. Ed Rev will be held on April 22, 2017 at AT&T Park. It is an amazing day of self-awareness, advocacy and resources for individuals with learning and attentional disabilities.
Nina’s recent donation to PEN went towards helping community college students and faculty attend EdRev. The day is marked with amazing keynote speakers, workshops, information booths, youth participation, and other fun activities (like getting to run around the SF Giants baseball diamond). Plus Nina will be the MC and will signing her book Once Upon An Accommodation: A Book About Learning Disabilities. “I love seeing so many young people being proud of the way they think,” Nina says of the event. “It’s something I just didn’t have when I was kid. To be there with other people who think differently and celebrate those differences is so empowering. I hope my contributions to PEN help bring more participants to this awesome event!”
