As a student studying nutrition, I believe everyone should have equal access to health. This is something that everybody shares and unites us together – no matter your background, upbringing or whichever part of the world you are from. This social issue is something that truly means a lot to me.
- What’s close to your heart?
My friends, my family and my passions.
- Fun fact!
I was named after Santa Claus as I was born on December 22nd. My mom likes to refer to me as “Saint Nick”.
I’m also an outdoor rock climber and enjoy travelling to different areas to climb. My favorite places to climb are in the Red River Gorge and Lion’s Head!
