At the age of eleven, Chaida entered foster care in Montgomery County, Maryland, where she spent years in multiple foster placements before transitioning out of the system as an adult. Chaida is currently studying English at the University of Maryland, College Park, where she advocates for disenfranchised students and campus reform as a Campus Correspondent. Chaida spends her free time working as a freelance writer, reading, and doing Zumba. She hopes to one day lead her own publishing company or become a lawyer specializing in civil law.
