Counterclockwise is a tax-exempt non-profit* that was started to challenge the message of what we teach young people about who they are, in particular young girls. Donations are used to help me continue to spread this message. I travel to speak to girls and women of all ages from all walks of life. My goal is to make sure every girl and woman knows their voice matters.
I'm Nichol and I am a sexual assault survivor. Each day I strive to use my experiences to help others. There is a message of strength and hope in every tragedy I've overcome.
Newport Beach (or some nearby variation) has been my home for the last 20 years. Chapman schooled me. Cloud Nine Yoga and YogaWorks framed me. I learn something from every single person I meet.
I am the love child of two amazing individuals who stayed together long enough for me to enter the world. My mom is a superhero and raised me with all the gusto and love you could imagine in her hometown, Kansas City. She's the strongest woman I know. I hope her wisdom breathes into some of these paragraphs. The man she chose to be my dad, my Big Dog, is as smart and loyal as they come. My maternal grandparents have played a huge role in my life - My grandma is smiling down on me and her voice resonates in my mind every single day. My grandpa is the most present person in my life. His love is the most unconditional I've ever seen.
My gratitude for you is endless.
Spread the word.
Let me know how I can help you.
Pay it forward.
