About the author  ⁄ Nikki Reining

Hello there! I'm Nikki and I'm 21 years old. I'm a third-year journalism student at Mohawk College. My aspiration is to work in Production or in Public Relations because I really enjoying working with people or work in the theatre industry because I love the magic of the stage. If I could work my way up to New York or London, that would be a dream come true. When I'm not guzzling coffee to keep myself awake to work you can usually find me curled up with some tea and a good book or raging over my video game controller. One of my favourite things to do is travel. I love seeing new places and learning about different cultures. I'm obsessed with Harry Potter. I prefer DC to Marvel. I could visit Disney World every day. I love 'nerd' culture. I love musicals, my current favourite is Hamilton, I know, so original. I love to take photos of everything and anything. I love food and could eat all day. I'm bubbly and energetic I love interacting with people. and I love getting all dolled up, even if I have nowhere to go.
