A self-professed “number lover“, Nicholas previously attended Crawford University in Ogun State, Nigeria in pursuit of an accounting degree.

Nicholas credits her mom and immediate family for encouraging her to be a model. “My mother and siblings were supportive – my mom loves fashion, so she really wanted me to become a model, her support was what pushed me to go for the competition.”

The finalist of the 2014 Elite Model Look contest, she’s the first Nigerian model to appear in advertisements for Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana and Saint Laurent.

Nicholas’s first runway show was in 2015 in which she walked for Schiaparelli’s Spring couture show.

Since, Nicholas has appeared in fashion campaigns for Versace, Oscar de la Renta, Chanel, Prada and Michael Kors.

Nicholas is represented by The Society Management, Elite Model Management, and Beth Model Management
