Early life and education
Nichole was raised in New York State by her parents, about whom nothing’s known as she respects their privacy; it’s believed that her father was a baker, and that her mother was a hairdresser. Because Nichole hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, most of her fans believe her to be an only child.
She grew up being interested in numerous activities, but dreamed of becoming a model. Nichole played various sports at both elementary and high school, excelling in tennis and soccer, all because she believed being physically active would shape her figure, and prepare her for her modelling career.
Upon matriculating in 1993, she signed her first modelling contract, and thus didn’t enroll at college; she spent the following three years modelling around the US and Europe, prior to launching her career in the film industry.
