You know how we often wish we could get paid to eat good food, visit cool places and have a glam squad to look all fleek? Well, Nicole sort of has that job!
She once wrote in my high school year book that I could win a Pulitzer prize for writing. I must have laughed when I read that, because she was the writer! She was the one who, with her instantly recognizable handwriting filled notebooks from cover to cover with short stories and almost full blown novels with intricate plots . I wasn't quite sure how she could be so creative. She may have introduced me to John Grisham - and we'd generally have a good time talking about his legal thrillers. At that point we'd also thought we'd be lawyers.
Interestingly, we got called to the Nigerian bar on the same day - but law wasn't just it for Nicole - the sober profession couldn't contain her creativity.
