She has since looked to volunteerism to hone her English skills and practise environmental stewardship. Her passions lie in climate and social justice, sustainability, and animal welfare. Nicole is highly involved in youth organizations including Sustainable Youth Canada for which she is the Initiatives Chair. In her free time, Nicole can be found hiking, exploring the city with her camera, or singing with the Vancouver Orchestra Club.
