About The Author



Welcome to Perlas del Islam!

My name is Nichola- I’m an Afro-Caribbean/Afro-Latina Muslimah from the 216, Land of Lebron James: Cleveland, OH. I’m a senior at Case Western Reserve University double-majoring in Spanish and Biochemistry. I plan on becoming a physician, and specialize in either Cardiology or Family Medicine.

I’m wildly passionate about language and communication, and intersections of identities (hence, this project!). I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, and a bit of Arabic; I’d like to learn French one day as well. I love to travel, admire nature, and play volleyball. Penguins are my favorite animal, and green is the best of colors :-).
