CNI-X Mini-Series: The Staff Mentor Experience, with Nicola Manalili and Abhi Anand

April 2024

In this episode in our CNI-X Mini-Series on WHAT MAKES UP YOUR MIND we meet two of the Staff Mentors who add a unique dimension to Stanford Psychiatry’s Clinical Neuroscience Immersion Experience for high school students. Throughout the two week program, these college-age mentors - usually CNI-X alums themselves - share their knowledge and experience in neuroscience, facilitate discussion, and support participants as they gain confidence in exploring new subjects. Just by their presence, they offer the students an example of where they may choose to be in just a year or two in the future as college students, perhaps on their way to a career in mental healthcare. In this mini-pod, meet Nicola Manalili, who combined her love of science and the desire to make the world a better place and is now in her third year of college studying Public Health. Joining Nicola is Abhi Anand who fell in love with psychology in high school and caught the business bug watching Shark Tank with friends. He put the two together in a recent degree in Business Psychology and Marketing.
