After seeing people in her life become ill over the years, and participating in genomic studies herself, Nicky decided to get into science herself to help work on research into finding answers to these problems.

Looking to the future, Nicky says hopes to pursue research that will improve the quality of life and help people, especially Māori. Nicky says she wants to learn to be a person who is able to be a bridge between both worlds, te ao Māori and research science.
