Nikky has a diploma in audio engineering and production, which lead to stage managing, hosting radio, organizing events, videography, frontline Indigenous resistance media/ journalism and following her childhood dream of becoming a professional recording and performing artist. Displaced from her traditional homelands, Nikky grew up in East Van where she fought hard to walk this path despite all the challenges and systematic oppression placed upon her.
