FREE and open to the public
Natasha Verma, who is the weekday morning anchor for NBC’s 9NEWS in Denver. After graduating from The University of Texas at Austin with degrees in broadcast journalism and biology/pre-med, Verma, daughter of Omesh and Shama Verma of Victoria, earned her master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University just a year later at the age of 18.
In 2017, Verma was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkin’s lymphoma. During her chemotherapy, Verma designed cap wigs made of 100-percent human hair attached to cotton or velvet. Through her nonprofit organization, the Verma Foundation, she began the #PutACapOnCancer movement, which provides free cap wigs to women and children fighting the disease. Verma’s cancer is in remission.
