My name is Lizzy Nichols and I am currently pursuing my masters in Literatures of the Americas at Trinity College Dublin in Dublin, Ireland. Recently, I have been a youth mentor with the Arizona Youth Conservation Corps based out of the Verde Valley. Before that, I was 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. Currently, I am filled with existential dread about what the future of this bio will be, but I’m glad you’ve wandered into this corner of the internet with me for the moment anyway. Wanna step outside into the cold together? I don’t smoke, but I like to carry lighters around with me to make friends. I’d like for you to teach me to make smoke rings with the condensated winter in my breath.
