Originally from New Jersey, Mitaali moved to Montréal for university. There, she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from McGill University. Her high school and university careers have been focused on science outreach and education in various forms. In high school, Mitaali worked on community engagement with STEAM through the local robotics team. She coordinated events for peers, children, and sponsors to emphasize the importance of STEAM education and its role in our future. In university, Mitaali focused on science outreach through clubs and initiatives on campus. In her time volunteering with Let’s Talk Science McGill, she reached out to students of all ages through classroom science demonstrations, museum activities, symposiums, and festival booths. She also co-facilitated the Broad Science Youth Radio Journalism Workshop, which taught local elementary students how to interview a McGill researcher on radio. Along with her time volunteering, she attended many workshops for cultivating Science Communication skills in different media and participated in a research project aimed at understanding youth-led inquiry on topics in science.
