My name is Kiara Nicole. I identify with she/hers pronouns. I am a spiritual being who loves animals fiercely and passionately. I love being in nature, honoring it, loving it, and caring for it. I have two dogs and a cat that I would lasso any moon for. I genuinely have a passion for people. I am currently an intern with the Epicenter. I moved to Monterey from Sacramento in pursuit of my Social Work degree. I’m fortunate to be able to be included in this organization because of how accepting everyone can be. I’m excited to see how far the Epicenter will go after seeing how much it has grown. They have played a major role in affirming my passions while helping me achieve them.
