Bio

Nicole Eigbrett '14 was a Global Studies and Multi-language (studying French, Spanish, Chinese) double major with a minor in Chinese Studies at St. Lawrence. Her research focused on the political economy of food and post-colonial reproduction in cultural identity. She spent semesters studying in France and China, and was actively involved on campus with arts and community service organizations, including living at the Habitat for Humanity theme house. Nicole's values as a social activist led her to join AmeriCorps VISTA at Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity, and now serves as the Community Outreach Director.

Nicole, an aspiring journalist, joined the Weave 2015 believing that free, independent media is critical to a healthy democracy. She is the author of Adopted Identities (http://weavenews.org/blogs/nicoleeigbrett), a blog exploring transnational and transracial adoption as a cultural practice in the United States, and contributes to the Weave's social media strategy.

Nicole currently resides in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts with plans to continue globetrotting. You can connect on her personal blog, Loquaciousness (http://loquaciousnicole.blogspot.com/).
