Peer Health Educator

Hi! My name is Nikki and I use she/her pronouns. I am going into my third year at UW, and I am a psychology major! I enjoy learning about the brain, and specifically about how to learn and teach! This intersecting interest led me to PHE- a way to connect my interest in the human mind and emotions to my interest in teaching and education. Well-being to me is finding balance between everything we want to do and everything we physically can do, and not feeling like we are less than for not living up to our own expectations. A strength I have is compassion, I find myself thinking of others emotions and feelings a lot which helps me empathize in tough situations. During COVID one activity that has helped me practice resilience is cooking! I enjoy teaching myself new dishes and spending time with family and friends in the kitchen.
