Nihita Manem

Hello! My name is Nihita Manem, and I am a senior at Pitt. I was born and raised in Northern Virginia and came to Pitt to take advantage of the various opportunities this campus has to offer. I hope to one day travel the world and become a successful doctor. Aside from Student Government Board, I serve as the current education director of Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority, am a Chemistry Teaching Assistant, member of Students Conquering Cold Cases, and former SummerBridge Tutor and sister of Gamma Sigma Sigma Service Sorority.

Through my active involvement on campus, I have developed a passion for advocating for student voices around campus. As a board member, I will strive to further integrate myself into the Pitt community in order to make Student Government board more accessible and take student concerns to the level of the administration to make this campus an improved, safe place. Please feel free to reach out to me with any concerns or if you just want to chat! Hail to Pitt!
