Nicol proudly graduated from California State University, Dominguez Hills in 2020 and immediately entered her MSW graduate program at California State University, Los Angeles where she graduated in May 2023. Nicol is an advocate for the undocumented community and hopes to create space for people of color to be represented in policy-making.
