McGill Faculty of Engineering, BBME, Biological and Biomedical Engineering

Queen's University (BCmp'21)

North York, ON

Nicole started a project to encourage other students of diverse backgrounds to consider applying to Queen’s University, after hearing that she was one of the first students in her high school’s history to attend. She served as president for three years, building a team of more than 30 students. Nicole also organized a campus-wide African, South American, and Caribbean culture “cook-out” for students after noticing a gap in Black History programming in residence. Nicole is studying biomedical computing at Queen’s University. She worked with a professor to build software modules for a hip replacement surgery tool and held a part-time job as a data analyst. She will pursue a master’s degree in biological and biomedical engineering at McGill.
