Hi everyone, my name is Nikki and I’m Jamaican born and Baltimore raised. My mother was raised in England and my paternal grandfather was born in Panama to Jamaican parents and lived there until he was 13. I believe that my background has shaped my outlook on the world to a global one although I have not been able to travel as much as I would like. I have been to several states on the East Coast and I’ve visited family in Canada, England, and of course Jamaica. I have a BS in Environmental and Renewable Resource Economics from Penn State and am almost finished my Masters in Environmental Management. I am one of many who don’t currently work in their chosen field but hope to transition sometime in the near future.
I decided to start this to serve as an outlet for myself. I will share all of the things that I love, and might complain a bit about the things I hate haha. I have always been the type of person to worry or harp on things that I cannot control. I realized sometime last year, that writing truly does help a lot so here we are! This blog will probably be all over the place but the beauty is, is that it is whatever I want it to be and goes by no one’s expectations but my own.
Here we go!
