Humans of Northwood: Nikki Kendrick ’18

Nikki

“I am passionate about helping others and being there for someone that might need it. That side of me is probably why with the freshmen, away from home for the first time, I’ve tried my best to help and guide them to the best of my abilities. This trait is probably why I’ve been babysitting autistic kids for years now; I started with my neighbor who was about three at the time. It was very difficult at first and I had to figure it out, which I learned a lot from. As a freshman I was very scared and barely got out of my room. If I could talk to freshman Nikki right now, I’d tell her to be herself, not be scared of what others think, try new things and…. Let go of things. Keeping something in and holding onto negatives doesn’t do any good.”
