Nila Amin, Communications

"Alhamdullilah, I am a mother of two beautiful girls. I also am a Systems Administrator for a IC contractor. Besides loving to be with my family, I love reading...that is my "me" time. I started as a room parent for KGP a few years ago and also distributed pizza on Mondays for a while. Seeing how excited my girls were to see me around their school, is what made me decide to join the PTO."

I hope to contribute and make this a successful year, iA."
