INTEL: Self-employed singer, songwriter and vocal coach. Single. She started gaining weight at age 12 and continued to struggle with weight issues through her college years when she was diagnosed with a vocal nodules and put on steroids.  When she does workout, she walks/jogs for 6 miles.

ON WHY SHE WANTS TO BE ON MISSION MAKEOVER: Because it’s time and I’m over being overweight. I want it and am done with see-sawing and feeling the way I do in my skin. I don’t like to look in the mirror and I don’t recognize myself. Because I’m a performer, it’s tough having to worry about whether or not I’m going to get the gig because of my appearance. I’m over feeling that pressure. I want to get rid of the weight and be happy. I deserve to be happy.

FUN FACTS: She has auditioned for American Idol and X Factor.  A true performer, Nikki started to model at age 4, doing local commercials, runway shows and catalogs.

ON HER WEAKNESSES: In the past I have been impulsive with food. I have quite a bit of emotional attachment to food and it’s kind of like my happy place and my sad place all in one.  I grew up in a Jamaican household, eating Jamaican foods and my parents were big eaters, to which I became as well.

ON HER MOTIVATION TO LOSE WEIGHT: My Family and my mom, who used to be overweight and now is a trainer and my role model.  Also, my sisters are overweight and I want to encourage them, set an example for them and show it can be done.

ON HER GOALS:   I want to rock a bikini, do a professional photo shoot, record an album and be the best possible version of myself that I can be.  I am ready to take charge and fight for my life.

ON 3 WORDS THAT DESCRIBE HER LIFE: Fearless, Passionate, Competitive.
