At Nexus:

I joined Nexus in September 2020 as the Community Engagement Coordinator through Public Allies. I now support the Community Engagement Institute as the Program Associate by executing work in curriculum development and facilitation, outreach and engagement, evaluation, communication, and capacity-building.


In May 2020, I graduated from Macalester College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and Latin American Studies. Joining Nexus has given me the opportunity to guide my curiosity in community engagement work while learning about the strengths I have to offer. My passions include storytelling, food, dance and art. I am passionate in finding creative ways to use food, storytelling, and art to form community. My interests included dancing, creating art, reading and watching Disney movies.


Your ancestors did not survive/ everything that nearly ended them/ for you to shrink yourself/ to make someone else/ comfortable./ This sacrifice is your warcry,/ be loud,/ be everything/ and make them proud./ -Nikita Gill
