My name is Nikki Vernon, and ever since I was little I’ve been interested in the arts. Whether it was drawing animals or making packaging for fake cereal out of paper, you could always find me doing something creative. Throughout public and high school I was known as the “art kid” and would always end up staying past school hours in the art room until the janitors would have to kick me out. I always went over and above when working on projects for my creative classes.
University was a huge game changer for me, because now I was suddenly surrounded by all of the other “art kids” from other schools and it took some time to figure out who I was and what made me me. I can now confidently say I am a proud holder of a Bachelor’s Degree in Design from OCAD University, and on the road to a bright future in the world of the arts.
