Charismatic, intelligent and strong-minded, Nichole is happiest when she’s able to bond with people, especially friends and those close to her. Nichole believes in the power of positivity, which is why one of her favorite things to do is smile. She says it’s because, “I know deep in my heart, if I start to smile, other people will smile with me.” Nichole’s charisma and ability to “find the light in dark times” is what she likes most about herself. She says, “I’m strong because I remember a time when being strong was all I had.” For fun, Nichole likes to draw, sing and dance. Though she likes a variety of music, Nichole’s favorite genres are heavy metal and country, but there’s a special place in her heart for classic rock and violinist, Lindsey Sterling. She’s not one for television, but she loves all the Harry Potter movies. Her favorite animals are cats; she would like to have one as a pet someday. In school, she likes her English class, and one of her future goals is to learn Mandarin Chinese. Nichole’s favorite foods are double fudge chocolate chip cookies and ice cream from Cold Stone. If Nichole could change the world, she would make sure every child in foster care finds a loving family so no is left behind or left feeling unloved.
Nichole has no preference as to what her forever family looks like. She says, “as long as they love and care about me, I’ll be happy.”
