Nadi Nuhu

Nadi Nuhu '12


Nadrat “Nadi” Nuhu graduated Spring 2012 with a BA in Psychology.  She was born in Ghana, but was raised in Stone Mountain, Georgia.  After she graduated from Agnes Scott she worked at the Marcus Autism Center for a year before apply to graduate school.  She is currently in Auburn University’s Clinical Psychology doctoral program.  Her research interests include teaching social skills to children and adolescents diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and investigating interventions targeted at individuals that engage in high levels of problem behavior.  Nadi feels that Agnes Scott played a major role in making her the person she is today.  Attending Agnes Scott provided her a new lens to view the world and helped her develop an understanding of the role she could play.  Her favorite memory was meeting Susan Dougherty within the first few weeks of her first year.  She ran into her office desperate for a work-study position and left that day with both a job and new friend.  Her friendship helped her extend her coursework to beyond the classroom.  She wrote “the amazing thing about Agnes Scott is that although the coursework was challenging and discussions evoking, it was the continued discussions outside of the classroom that truly helped me gain a better understanding of why it was so important to be an active participant in the world around me.”  Nadi’s photo is of her in Auburn.
