Nicole's Study Abroad Trip

From a young age, I have been passionate about storytelling.  After participating in 8 Days, a non-profit film about human trafficking, I had the opportunity to speak on national talk shows (e.g. Steve Harvey) and raise awareness during premiere tours across America and South Africa. These opportunities have motivated me to continue growing.

Along with classical methods, I have studied those pioneered by George Morrison, Jack Waltzer, and Ivana Chubbuck. However, I desire to strengthen my foundation and explore new creative frontiers at RADA's Contemporary Drama Summer School in England. It would be an honor to work with experienced professionals, guest speakers, and diverse performers. From Vivien Leigh to Alan Rickman, many of my acting idols graduated from RADA. The opportunity to be a small part of this rich tradition is invaluable.

Actors symbolize agents of change. Our art form unites people and serves as a brilliant reminder: we all have a story to tell. 

I hope that this exciting endeavor will open doors of opportunity, so I can give back in new ways.
