Adriana Holst

Compassion Ambassador

Brief info

Adriana Holst is currently developing introductory programming course materials for CPP, and she attends Ohio University with a double major in computer science and musical theater. Adriana first became active in working to seek out and heal trauma three years ago with her still active non-profit, Grant A Guitar, that “strives to make music available to anyone and everyone - and especially where it can help us heal and grow.” She has been coding for three years, and spent her senior project at NASA last year. Adriana is hoping that the CPP training materials will help to open minds and doors.
