My Bio

Hola! Me llamo Nikki! I'm 15 years old and currently a sophomore attending Brookwood High School. I live in Lawrenceville, Georgia with my mom, stepdad, and two sisters. In my free time I enjoy engaging in extracurricular activities like swim, dance, martial arts, piano, and most prevalently: art. I love all types of art, though I favor the new school style above all else. I was a candidate in the Governor's Honors Program (a competition where only 9 art students from our student body of 3500 were selected) this past year, and the process opened my eyes to all the possibilities of a future in the world of art. I am very passionate about art and intend to pursue an art path after high school and college, which is one of the many reasons the exchange experience will positively impact my future. Fully immersing myself in a new culture will give me a new perspective not only in art, but in all the psychographic aspects as well. During the exchange process, I’m hoping to be given the opportunity to share my culture and learn about new cultures. I'd love to live in a Spanish speaking country. I’ve spent a couple of months in Spain with my family and the experience was enlightening. I am currently studying Spanish, and becoming fluent would be majorly beneficial throughout my life because the ability to speak Spanish and English enables me to communicate with 2/3 of the world! Though a Spanish speaking country is ideal for me, should I be sent somewhere else I'm confident that I would adapt and embrace the opportunity. I know that you get out of an experience what you put into it and that's why, regardless of where I'm sent, I will give it my all!
