Nina Malik has always loved all types of games and owns hundreds of games which she plays with her family and friends. She grew up in a military family and has lived in many states including Maine, Arizona, Connecticut, and Oklahoma. She also spent almost three years living in Iceland. She struck out on her own after high school, first attending school in Philadelphia for her AS in Business Administration before moving to Oregon to switch majors and finish her BA in Child and Family Studies at Portland State University. At PSU, she focused in elementary education, then received her MAT from the University of Southern California in 2012.
Nina loves to play in many ways and volunteer her time in the community. Outside of the classroom some of her favorite activities are bike rides, roller coasters, and board games. She and her wife live with their teenage son and young daughter. The family likes to go camping, take road trips, explore new places, and find the unusual places and oddities in the world.
