My name is Lizzy Nichols and I am currently a youth mentor with the Arizona Youth Conservation Corps based out of the Verde Valley. Recently, I have been an English teaching assistant in Pézenas, France and a graduate of Northern Arizona University with a degree in English, a certificate in Literature, and a minor in French. In the fall, I will be pursuing my masters in Litteratures of the Americas at Trinity College Dublin. Currently, I am filled with existential dread about what to do with my future beyond that, but I take comfort in my constant desire to have Taco Belle for all meals of the day.
