Nicole Iadevaia is a doer. A lover, a giver and a fighter. A person who believes in all peoples’ rights, but above all, Nicole is a mental health advocate with passion and brightness that could rival the Sun.
At 22 years old and a “quarter-life-crisis” later, Nicole will be graduating from the SUNY Farmingdale psychology program and intends to obtain a masters in social work. When she's not trying to change the world, she enjoys writing poetry (she actually has a published poetry book!) and is a coffee aficionado.
Nicole lives with Lupus and GAD and even though doctors question the mystery of her health, she's never questioned her purpose in life: to help others. With that being said, Nicole loves meeting new people and is always open to fun dialogues and conversations about anything and everything!
