Nicholas grew up in a family where history was preserved through an African practice known as storytelling. As a child, he heard many stories about his ancestors from his grandparents and parents. As a result, he grew to love storytelling and began to write stories from a tender age. His passion for story writing evolved into poetry and spoken word as he grew older. Nicholas holds a B.Sc in Social Work and an M.Sc. in Gender and Development Studies from the University of the West Indies and has been working as a Social Worker for the past eleven years.
