Nivita Arora


Nivita began her work with CNNP through the Just Ideas initiative. In the fall of her senior year at Columbia University, she joined Just Ideas as an undergraduate intern, teaching courses at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn. As she got more involved with reformative education and philosophy, she started working more directly with CNNP and its projects. She is now looking to become certified in Secondary Special Education, working in NYC public schools while continuing to teach in the prisons into which those students are often pipelined.
