Nikki is probably most recognized as the bitchy cheerleader "Whitney" in the blockbuster mega-hit Bring It On, starring Kirsten Dunst.

"I am an actress, not an Asian actress. I'm an actress first, who happens to be Asian American. This does not limit my ability, nor should it limit my opportunities to play any female character."

It's a non-specific ethnic role and the female lead. Being marked by critics as "The St. Elmo's Fire of this generation"- LA Weekly, the film received numerous awards at all the film festivals both nationwide and internationally.

Personal Quotes (2)

It's been a amazing spiritual journey of self discovery. Extremely difficult, but eye opening. It's profound how much my life has changed over the last few years. I have finally awaken and realized how the Universe really works. I consistently and consciously work on myself every moment of everyday.
There are unlimited possibilities. We create everything in our lives, the good and the bad. There is never anyone to blame or point fingers. Only we are responsible for our actions and feelings.There is no such thing as bad occurrences...they just are. It's merely a result of a choice you have made. How you choose to handle it, is the result of the outcome. It's about going inward and discovering your truth of who you really are. Whatever you project outward is what you bring in for yourself.
