Personal History Nala was born and raised in Colorado, becoming captain of her swim, gymnastics, and science clubs throughout Elementary, Middle, and Highschool.
When Nala was six years old, she and her family went to Mesa Verde, National Park. While there, Nala wandered off and encountered a black bear and her cubs. As she was trying to back away, Nala tripped over some branches, the bear heard her, and came after her. Nala made it to some trees before the bear caught her and slashed her face with three of it's claws, but then it got scared off by a group of horseback riders with noise makers. When they got Nala to the hospital, she surprised them all by asking them if she could keep the scars as a reminder to be more aware of what was going on around her. Because of her bear experience, Nala wanted to become some sort of Doctor, but because she was slightly impatient and didn't want to spend all the time it took to become one, (NOT that she wasn't grateful to Doctors and Nurses and such!), but she wanted to help people SOONER that the five, eight, or more years after Highschool it would take to get through Medical School. To that end, Nala started taking extra curricular classes on things pertaining to being a doctor.
Nala moved to San Francisco to enroll in Starfleet Academy when she turned seventeen, graduating in the top 20 out of 100 students in her class. Nala's first assignment was aboard the USS Appomattox for three years then joined the Artemis on her twenty-fourth birthday, who were starting on a new type of mission that peaked her interest.
Service Record USS Appomattox NCC 75001 for three years
