Hey! I'm glad you're here!
Hi, I am Nica Lucero. For those who don’t know me, I am a 23-year-old culinary student from the Philippines and I am many things. A chef in the making, a freediver in the works, a growing conservationist, a follower of adventure, a lover of Mama Earth, and a human in progress. I’d like to believe I haven't been anything yet; I haven’t reached the end of the line. I am constantly growing and improving. There's so much in the world that I have yet to experience.
Everywhere I go, I see stories waiting to be written and experience things worth telling. I am never not moved by the places I visit or by the things happening around me. I write everything down in hopes that I get to move people the same way these things move me. And in return, create a connection that would fuel my journey in this ride called life.
I know that the first step to making real connections is if I'd be fearless enough to let the world know all of who I am, including all the good and all the bad. That's why I'm here. Come with me as I slowly get to know who I am, as I build my character, as I learn and unlearn things, as I expose my vulnerability, and as I boldly let people in.
Come with me as I venture to the highs and lows of life. This is the world through Nica.
P.S. From the bottom of the ocean — that is my heart, to the peaks of the mountains — that is my soul, thank you for being here.
