Meet Nicholes


Pronouns: They/them/theirs
 Northern Virginia
Major:  Rural Development

Hi y'all, my name's Nicholes, I'm Virginia-born Washington resident. I moved up to Fairbanks (my first time this far north) as of March. 2017. I'm a proud nontraditional student and ex-dropout; I've been a Cheese-maker/Hoop breaker, Ground Crew at Dulles International Airport and a Security Officer/Systems Monitor. All of my jobs were probably helped by my constant traveling; I've lived in Japan, Thailand and Poland and consequently never lived anywhere longer than four years. Now I'm pursuing my degree in Rural Development and I'm really enjoying returning to my academic career and getting my feet wet with my studies.
