Hi, I’m Niki! I’m from Indiana and I’m here to have a great summer! Some of my favorite activities are: biking, hiking, climbing, swimming, painting, crafting, camping, kayaking, and cake decorating. I have a pet Betta fish named Mr. Blue-guess what color he is! I went to school for Sustainable Tourism and have had the opportunity to travel all over!
