Nayda Anjou is a third-year student at Michigan State University majoring in Astrophysics with a minor in Spanish. Her interest in astronomy was sparked when she attended a field trip to the local planetarium as an elementary age child. The experience would stay with her throughout her life and would eventually lead to her becoming a presenter at that same planetarium. Anjou also holds a student outreach position at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) and has served as an executive board member for the Astronomy Club since her freshman year. She plans on using the TEAM-UP Together scholarship to assist her in affording the materials and resources needed to be a successful student.
