"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.

In addition, she has written articles regarding human behavior with an emphasis on self awareness. Using her own personal experiences regarding relationships and career, Nikki wrote her first online published work titled "Easy vs. Hard," offering relateable warmth, self acceptance and a deeper understanding that is inspiring to all.
