Hi! My name is Nikki, and I come from Manchester in England. I'm 22 years old and a student at the University of Nottingham. When I'm not at University I live at home with my Mum, Dad, younger sister Jenny and my dog Sam. In my spare time I enjoy swimming and running and baking cakes!
I am currently staying with family who live in Empangeni while I volunteer at ikhaya for 6 weeks. While I'm in South Africa I will also be spending some time working at a local hospital as this is very relevant to my degree and I hope I can learn something useful!
I am really enjoying spending so much time with the children and staff at Ikhaya! However, I will be flying home in time to spend Christmas 2010 with my family.
