My name is Nicole Felter and I am a graduate from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Plattsburgh. I am originally from a very small town in New York State called Kerhonkson. Being from a small town with limited opportunities, I never imagined that I would have accomplished all that I have to this day. Being one of the only people in my family to pursuit a college degree has demonstrated the importance of positivity and perseverance.

Through the different organizations I have been a part of and the different things I have experienced in my college career I have gained multiple valuable skills. Speaking Spanish is the most important skill I learned while studying abroad and I am proud to say I am fluent. Event planning, team work, fundraising, marketing and work delegation are skills that have carried me through the execution of various successful philanthropy events. These skills have ultimately shaped me into a leader who embodies enthusiasm, optimism, fervor, drive and ambition.
