In a quest to provide educational opportunities for these children, her efforts have fostered a relationship between US and Ecuadorian institutions, and her passion has encouraged others to partake in an international exchange of culture and intellect. Nicki is a three time recording artist on the classical guitar and is holder of a US Patent for a school product she developed at the age of 11.
