“I think the more that we start to value women and lift them up, and really help them see the potential that they can reach, society will be improved as a whole.” Nicola’s mother gave birth to her first child at the tender age of 17. She was a single-parent for the first two years of Nicola’s life before meeting her stepdad. It wasn’t until Nicola was 7 that her little sister, Alice, was born. This meant that Nicola had a long stretch during her childhood of being an only child.
