Nona has worked and gained valuable experience in many industries including public relations, communications, sales, marketing, and even the fashion industry.

Nona attended Nottingham University, located in Nottingham England from 2006-2009. She graduated from a BA in studied Social and Cultural Studies in hopes of one day becoming a journalist and and anchor-woman. For her final year thesis, Nona wrote a dissertation on the Transnational Analysis of Television News: The Implications of Obama’s victory. She simultaneously recorded and translated TV news footage from the British BBC, American Fox News, Japanese NHK, Saoudi Al Arabya and French TF1 to study the difference in language, vocabulary and culture that each network and country choose to portray Obama’s victory. Her conclusion are, as philosopher Roland Barthes once explained, that language by its limitations in vocabulary is in itself a cultural confinement that shapes reality. For example, the Eskimo have over 50 words to describe what in English is “Snow”, therefore the signification of the word “snow” in English will never be as concise as the Eskimos by the limitations of language. Broadening that concept, Nona studied the limitations of language used to describe Obama’s victory in news reports.
