About Me


My name is Nikki.  I’m 27, born in NC, but raised all over the USA.
I can talk for hours about all the places I have seen and lived!

I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2008
with a Bachelor’s in Communications in Public Relations.

After graduation I moved to Orlando, FL to work for Disney and stayed for 4 years, where my love for the mouse deepened! Top 3 Disney Movies; Cinderella, Lilo and Stitch, and Princess and the Frog.

oh yeah that's me...circa 2008...Tomorrowland Cast Member Attire and all!

I recently relocated back to Charlotte, NC to start a new chapter in my life. Like most 20-somethings nowadays I’m just trying to make a life for myself and see what adventures I can get into next. So many amazing experiences happened during my time at UNCC that I wanted to come back for Round 2.

My father is a Marine and I spent a majority of my life moving around. My favorite places to live were Hawaii, Japan, and California. This has made me an extremely social person with a very eclectic style and taste. I am influenced by all things Hawaiian/Japanese/ Southern/ West Coast.  

I am a full blown Libra when it comes to my personality, very balanced and kind-hearted, and a ton of fun!

I am an extreme Foodie; currently dealing with the struggle to balance my love of food and balancing my weight. Sushi, Mac and Cheese, and Chinese food are some of my favorites.

In 2007 I become a member of Mu Sigma Upsilon Sorority Incorporated, the FIRST multicultural sorority in the nation. I am so proud to be a founder of the only chapter in North Carolina and I continue to promote the traditions and goals of the sorority. I am actively involved as an alumni member so a lot of what I do, the people I meet, and the places I go usually involves my sisters and my organization!

Obsessed with all things Leopard Print and Glitter!
Wonder Woman is AWESOME! I buy everything with her on it!
90s Cartoons are the best!
I have 3 Tattoos. All of them mean something and I have a list of more tattoos I want to get.
Disney! It will always have my heart!
Wiener Dogs are the cutest. It’s the only dog I’ve ever owned!
Turtles are my favorite animal. Crush is my dude!
Purple and Turquoise are my favorite colors.
Coffee makes the world go round. Or at least my world.
I’m a slave to Social Media. I will be on Instagram and Twitter all day if I could
Terrified of Frogs! It’s a real thing called Ranaphobia.
3 foods I dislike: Bananas, Peas, and Sweet Potatoes
I absolutely LOVE Reality TV Shows. Pure entertainment!
Traveling is my addiction. I’m always down for a trip!
I’m Guyanese-American. My dad is Guyanese and my mom is African-American
Love watching Sports. NY Giants! Miami Heat! Duke!
