History

Born on Trill on June 15, 2360 to unjoined Trill parents, Adira had an insatiable appetite for learning. She learned to read, write, and speak at an early age and grew up loving to read and asking questions about everything. This helped her stay at the top of her class all the way through high school. Her last two years of high school, she was even accepted to the Trill Science Ministry (TSM) as a provisional student and took a few classes before graduating in the top 10% of her senior class. She continued as a full student with the TSM and was on her way to earning degrees in Geography, Geology, and Meteorology and certifications in in Ecology, Astronomy, Anatomy, Pathology, Pharmacology, Physiology, and Psychology when she applied to the Symbiosis Commission, and after a long selection process, was given the Isan symbiont on June 15, 2385 at the age of 25. She completed her degrees and certifications at a record pace, due to the previous knowledge of the Isan symbiont, and graduated in May 2392 at age of 32. She went on to apply for entrance into Starfleet Academy in 2393 and failed. She continued to take a couple classes and even interned and was a student teacher at TSM. She applied to Starfleet Academy the following year and was admitted to the Academy in August 2394.
