The New Orleans BioInnovation Center has partnered with YouthForce NOLA, a program dedicated to preparing New Orleans public school students for the successful pursuit of high-wage, high-demand careers.

Meet our summer YouthForce NOLA Intern: Sh’nai Royal. Sh’nai is a senior honors student at Sophie B Wright High School in New Orleans. This Summer, Sh’nai will be supporting the BioInnovation Center by creating original content aimed at local youth with the goal of reinforcing COVID-19 countermeasures. Keep an eye out for Sh’nai’s content on our website and social media!

NOBIC is partnered with @YouthForceNOLA – an organization with one goal in mind: to better prepare our youth for the next stage of economic growth. @YouthForceNOLA has partnered with over 200 of our region’s employers, connecting students like Sh’nai with high-wage industries. Learn more about their impact here.

At NOBIC, Sh’nai will also interview inspiring biotech entrepreneurs and is excited to learn about how they are working to shape a better future. She is interested in research, medicine, and experimentation within the health industry. We are so excited to have Sh’nai on the team!
