She Does Yoga

Nicolet captioned the photo, "Springtime is coming. Got me feelin' groovy." Yoga really can improve your mood. "Prepost results indicate that both interventions represent an effective therapeutic approach in reducing anxiety and stress levels. However, there was a tendency toward a greater effectiveness of the Yoga Nidra intervention regarding anxiety, which might represent an effective tool in reducing both cognitive and physiological symptoms of anxiety," said one study.


She Wants To Inspire Other Black Actors

In an interview with KISH Magazine, Nicolet opened up about the struggles she has faced as a black actress. She also says that she wants to use her experiences to help other young black actors. "I have experienced a lot of challenges as a black actress. I started off really young. There were a lot of things I didn't know. I didn't know that there's a whole separate set of baggage that comes along as a black actress in this industry. It's hard enough to pursue your creative vision in any way in this industry, but when you are young and black, no one says to you, 'Oh and by the way. It means that people won't take you seriously.' …As an adult now, and as an experienced actress who doesn't have to face  as many of those challenges, I try and take on the responsibility of protecting younger actors and actresses from that, and shielding them and educate them."


She Speaks Out

Nicolet has never been afraid to speak out about issues and causes. During the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement in June 2020, Nicolet posted several photos supporting the movement on Instagram. On one post, she announced that she had posted a link of charities and resources that her followers could donate to. She captioned the post, "Use it. Share it. Be safe. We're in this together."


She Let Her Childhood Push Her Towards Acting

Nicolet tells KISH Magazine that her childhood is what gave her the idea to pursue acting and gave her the motivation to keep her career going. "I think what inspired me to be an actress is having had an unconventional childhood. I think I was drawn to acting as my spirit's way to express itself creatively. It gave me someplace to put all of these sort of strange things that happened in my life.  It let me use my imagination to process them, and make them useful…to make some sense of it all." 


She's Inspired By Her Family

In an interview with New You Media, Nicolet revealed some of her biggest inspirations. She said that she is heavily inspired by members of her family. "I have a really amazing group of girlfriends who inspire me to stay grounded, and do the best that I can with everything. My grandmother inspires me. Most of all, my dad, who  is battling cancer right now, is the biggest inspiration in the world. Cuz I can't believe how well he's handling it and how strong he's staying for me."


She Believes In A Balanced Diet

In her interview with New You Media, Nicolet revealed her approach to food. She says that she believes in eating a balanced diet, and saves her indulgence days for the weekends. "​​I'm all about eating right, and then on Sunday it's just copious amounts of wine because you have to balance it out."
