Rivera Shereen Nicole y Bernal, desirably known as Nikky, is a 21 yr old human cum cyborg student currently taking up Bachelor of Science in Architecture at Far Eastern University - Manila.
Aside from the gargantuan mound of plates she has to finish, she also devotes her time to working at FEU Advocate’s helm as its Editor-in-Chief for two consecutive years now, where she oversees all the operations of the university’s official student publication and media group. She also tackles various socially relevant topics in her opinion column, Façade. Before stepping up to the highest position in the publication, she previously served as its Features Editor in the years 2012-2014, and as a Features Writer in 2011. As a student journalist, she was already recognized by national and institutional journalistic organizations in various workshop-conferences and competitions.
On her rare spare times, she indulges in music—singing and playing her guitar, covering her favorite songs, if not composing a new one. When faced by a stump while creating her plates for architecture class, she “accidentally” draws avante garde fashion designs or paints when her creative juices drive her mind elsewhere. She also invests her free days (if there is such) on travelling, believing that experiences hold greater value than material acquisitions. Alongside with drowning herself to caffeine, reading and researching on dark science fiction are her brain-cardio exercise and all of these complete the tray to serve as her morning companion.
Aside from assisting Thomas Khun in his lab while waiting for the paradigm shift, she has also been patiently praying for a cure to her nyctalopia, dysmorphia, and dysania -- hoping not to find the answer in potassium because her body system doesn't welcome banana.
She have also dreamt of being a notable symbologist, an eskimo, and an astronaut and she is pressumably a sapiosexual. The only exception that makes her drool is a gleaming yellow Porsche Carrera 911 Turbo 4S Cabriolet.
To keep herself sane despite all the academic and press work hullabaloo, she takes random photos of herself in her #OOTDs to make the world assume she is still doing fine.
Sometimes she tries hard to be a normal human being, but that doesn’t seem to work out well for her, so she goes back to being Nikky Rivera—a ball of energy that never seems to find rest enjoyable.
