Nina Edward is a fourth year student of Geography at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. Her research interests include historical and human geographies, more specifically colonial and postcolonial studies. Apart from her geographical endeavours, she is the co-director of the TEDxUniversityofStAndrews annual conference. She is originally from Greenwich, Connecticut. As a student of Geography in the UK, Nina understands the importance the discipline of geography holds abroad. She greatly admires the mission of AGS and the work AGS does to express this importance and understanding in an American context. Her favourite thing about geography is how interdisciplinary it is- everything has a geographical element to it, and looking at things through a geographical lens can help us understand our world better.
