Traveler Bio

¡Hola a todos! Hey everybody! My name is Nicole, but you can call me Nicky. I am living, studying, working, and having fun in Querétaro, México for the next few months and am excited to share my time here with you! In the United States, I live in Houston, Texas, but I grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Those are on opposite sides of the country, so I traveled a lot when I was little, too! I am 20 years old, have two little brothers, a cat named Lucky, a dog named Buster, and my favorite thing to do is spend time with my wonderful friends. Back home, I go to the University of Texas at Austin and learn about international relations all day, which basically means I get to read about how all the countries in the world get along with each other. Did you know there are more than 193 countries in total? That’s a bunch to keep track of!

Speaking of countries, I also lived in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, this last summer. Tanzania is a country in Africa that is famous for a lot of things like a big mountain named Kilimanjaro (try to say that really fast!) and is also where the movie the Lion King takes place! Over there I worked for a company called Ubongo that makes cartoon shows for more than 6.4 million children every week-- isn’t that a lot!

I look forward to going on this journey with you. Let's go!
