Padra graduated from Wesleyan University where she double majored in Psychology and Education Studies and minored in Film Studies. In college, she worked as a technician to support staff, faculty, and students navigate the hardware systems installed around the campus. There she also obtained the role of the Student General Manager and acted as a supervisor to the student staff. Additionally, Padra found her passion working with youth in education settings. Throughout college, she volunteered as a tutor to support ELL students at the local middle school. She was also a Literature Teaching Fellow at Breakthrough Twin Cities during the summer of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the following summer, she was a camp counselor to international ELL students and supported them as they came to the U.S. to study abroad for 2 months at Georgetown Prep High School.

Outside of work, Padra enjoys filmmaking and occasionally posts new videos on her YouTube. She also enjoys dancing, cooking, listening to k-pop, and going to k-pop concerts!
