What can I say, that I miss Ms. Nikisha so much!!! She is one of the most kindest, humble, caring person I have met. She is honest and truly loves what she does! She has thought me so much from skincare, makeup application, nutrition and pose techniques, ect. She takes her time to help us understand how important all these things are within the entertainment industry. One of the best instructors!!!

Nike is an amazing teacher who knows her craft. What’s even better is that she explains her technique and the reason why certain products work better based on the individual. She is professional and incredibly approachable with any questions you may have. Kudos to her!

Ms. Nike is one of the best teachers and even Mentors I have ever had, she does not just stick to a curriculum on paper really makes you think and makes you question everything, I have learned so much from her just from her breaking down subjects into much greater depth, things you would have never have thought of that can help you make better/wiser decisions. Ms. Nike is someone you will learn something new from everytime you are around her, and she just knows how to breathe positivity and energy into others.
