Nicole Mejia – Pronouns: She/Her/Hers
Nicole is passionate about encouraging young people to dream big when it comes to their future, and she strives to be a mentor and resource for them as they achieve their goals. Her personal experiences navigating the education system as a first-generation college student and daughter of immigrants showed her the significant impact mentors and culturally relevant resources have on historically underserved students. As a result, Nicole committed herself to giving back the same support and services that allowed her to experience lots of personal, educational, and professional growth. She has always been motivated to explore diversity and social justice as it relates to education, and she is very proud and excited to serve as Summer Search’s Career Navigator and Internship Coordinator.
Nicole graduated from the University of Delaware with an Honors B.S. in Elementary Education and teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), and a Master’s through the university’s 4+1 Program. She is a proud alumnus of the McNair Scholars Program. In her free time, she enjoys working out, eating at her favorite food spots in Delaware, designing graphics, and watching Netflix.
