she | her | hers Hi y’all, I’m Nikola Halcyone. I have deep gratitude for the Umonhon People who this city was named for and whose land I’ve lived on since birth. I’m a white, queer, cisgender woman with a chronic pain condition who uses a wheelchair. I’m a born, raised, + currently practicing Nichiren Buddhist who works full-time and is in graduate school. I love people. My entire life revolves around my love for people. I love their stories and I’m honored to be the keeper of stories from actors who are Vietnam veterans + song-writers who are formerly incarcerated; engineers turned elected officials + civil rights attorneys turned non-profit collaborators; Latinx social workers, trans baristas, Black PhDs, gay pastors, Lakota teachers, disabled superheroes, + Japanese grandmas; curious high school students, determined young professionals, + accomplished CEOs. I hold each story as sacred, taking action to make the next generation of stories more equitable. I have a huge crush on Rachel Maddow + U.S. Sen. Cory Booker. Jean-Luc Picard is the best Captain. Nothing else matters when there’s a baby around.
