Nemala has moderated debates for mayoral and city council candidates, volunteered with the Georgia Youth Justice Coalition, and served as an intern for a Fulton County Superior Court judge. She also served as editor-in-chief of her high school newspaper and president of the school orchestra, where she played violin. She plans to major in political science before attending law school.
