Get to know Nikki:

What does being a DBC mean to you? Being a DBC, to me, means representing the brand and organization in the brightest light while impacting our community - and getting to cheer on the best team in the NFL!

Who is your hero? My mom and my dad

Tell us about the first concert you’ve ever been to? The first concert I went to was Backstreet Boys! It was at the original Mile High Stadium and it rained the whole night, I was so far back I could barely see … but it was the best night of my 7-year-old life.

What is your dream vacation destination? Australia! I think it is so different from the U.S., so it would be amazing to see. Or the huts on the water in Bora Bora!

Any hidden talents or tricks you can do? I can make a clover shape with my tongue

When did you first start dancing/cheerleading? I took my first dance class when I was 3 and haven’t stopped since.

In 10 years I see myself… happy! I see myself with a family, traveling and just living life to the fullest!

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be an artist. I used to sell my crafts and drawings to my parents for 10 cents each.

What advice would you give your younger self? Live in the moment! I think while growing up, we spend a lot of time worrying about things we can’t control and if I could go back and worry less and live more, I would. But I also wouldn’t change anything that got me to where I am today, because I wake up feeling beyond grateful and fortunate every single day.
