As a student, Nikole was hesitant to raise her hand, and shy around her peers. She knew she wanted to contribute more, but she didn’t think she had a voice. At Girls Inc., the all-girl environment not only helped Nikole express herself openly without fear of judgment, it inspired her to seek opportunities where she could lead groups of people. As the years passed, the Girls Inc. staff saw Nikole grow more confident and poised and recommended her for their Mentors Valuing Peers (MVP) program. As an MVP, Nikole served as a role model for other Girls Inc. girls, working closely with those who were just as reserved as she was on her first day at Girls Inc.
Nikole took what she learned through her Girls Inc. experience and applied it to making a difference in her community. She led a team in creating Little Libraries, which provided free access to books in multiple locations across the city. Showing her natural ability to manage people and projects effectively, Nikole also led a team in of creating a PSA for the Love Your Selfie campaign, which was featured on NBC’s TODAY Show.
Today, Nikole is a Girls Inc. Ambassador in San Antonio where she represents her affiliate at International Women’s Day conferences and annual STEM festivals. After her high school graduation, Nikole will apply the leadership skills she’s gained at Girls Inc. on the University of Texas, Austin campus where she plans to study communications.
