About Me

Filippino gator chomp Hi, I'm Nicole. I'm a senior photojournalism student at the University of Florida (Go Gators). I'm currently a reporting intern at the Gainesville Sun. Throughout my college career, I've been dabbling in wedding photography and travel photography, and I've discovered a passion for both. I believe the face of journalism is being transformed by multimedia, and my goal is to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to keep up with it. Above my passion for photography, lies my heart for mission work. My faith is what drives me. I've been to the Philippines twice with the Bob Tebow Evangelistic Association, and I plan to continue my travels abroad sharing the love of Jesus Christ with people in need. I believe strongly in loving perfect strangers and that we were put here to love and care for others. Therefore my goal for my career is to combine my passion for photography and storytelling with the mission field and humanitarian efforts. In my spare time, I love to hike, climb, explore, basically anything active. I suck at snowboarding, wakeboarding, and surfing, but I still love to try whenever I get the chance. That's pretty much it for now.
