She was a member of her high school's Envirothon team for four years and her team competed in the national competition for three years. An avid recycler, Nicole helped with her high school's paper recycling program and convinced her family to recycle everything at home, which included creating a compost bin!

Now, with hundreds of tabs, she will be cashing them in and donating the proceeds to an environmental organization. Working at a secondhand store, Nicole firmly believes and practices the 3 R's, buying organic and also tries to practice anti-consumerism. Nicole plans to study sustainable agriculture in college with hopes of joining the Peace Corps after receiving her four-year degree.
