Early Lifeedit | hide | edit source

Nadiya was born and raised by a second generation British-Bangladeshi mother and an American father, both of whom eventually divorced when she was three, leaving her in the sole custody of her father. Her father, being a scientist, held many lucrative patents that allowed Nadiya to be privately tutored rather than attend school. Since her father worked for the military as a highly paid consultant, Nadiya and her father never stayed in one place for long, which led Nadiya to form little interest in interpersonal relationships.

Following in her dad's footsteps, Nadiya would earn a doctorate in Biochemistry at an incredibly young age, and would later earn degrees in Biotechnology and Biomedical Sciences. Years later, she would find a job working for the DGF, where she would develop the ‘smart biopolymer’, which can be used in skin grafts and mimic and heal and adapt like human skin and has the sensitivity of human skin but can be made in a lab and doesn’t need skin donors.
