Nicole was born and raised in the Bay Area and recently graduated from the University of California, Riverside with a BS in business administration, concentrating in information systems. She was active in the Chinese Student Association and the Asian and Pacific Islander Student Advisory Council at UCR. Growing up in San Jose, working in the tech industry was always her goal. Given this opportunity to work with StreetCode Academy through the Americorps VISTA program, she is excited to help make technology and entering the tech industry more accessible to everyone, as well as to forge connections with her community.
In her free time, Nicole enjoys trying the best food and boba spots around the Bay Area, cooking, and spending time with her friends and family.
