Nina is Buddhistdoor Global’s North America correspondent. Her love of literature and cinema led her from the Jura mountains in Switzerland—where she grew up—to the University of Glasgow (Scotland) where she undertook a Master of Arts degree in English Literature and Slavonic Studies. After having read a book on Buddhism, Nina studied the religion along with meditation, yoga and non-violent communication at the Glasgow Buddhist Center. In 2011 she got a Master of Buddhist Studies from Hong Kong University—her focus was on Buddhist counseling and psychology and she wrote her thesis on Bhutan’s Gross National Happiness Index. She currently lives in Los Angeles.
