About Me

I'm Simonique from Seattle. My family affectionately calls me Nique (knee-key) or Nique-Pooh after Winnie the Pooh. I graduated in May 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Economics and a minor in Spanish. I spent 3 of my undergraduate semesters (plus a summer) in Brazil as an exchange student, volunteer, and intern. Some highlights from that experience are volunteering as an English teacher the first semester at a NGO school for under-privileged girls. An internship in Recife with the U.S. State Department that greatly influenced my life and sealed the deal for my career goals as a diplomat. Spending Caranval in Salvador da Bahia, New Years Eve in Rio de Janeiro, and going on scavenger hunts with friends for a wine bottle opener to bring to our bon fire on the beach.

Currently, I'm beginning a new journey with the Peace Corps as a Community Economic Development Volunteer in Benin, West Africa. In my spare time, I run fan pages for the acting phenom that is Angela Bassett and I dream of one day owning a $10,000 ultra durable, flight-safe, carbon fiber cello so I can continue playing during my travels.

Interests

I enjoy theatre-going, jazz lounges, comedy clubs, music festivals, and almost any kind of dancing. During the day you can find me talking to myself, binge watching a tv series, braiding my hair, or jogging.

Music, Movies & Books

Horror films and adventure novels! I never tire of a good zombie movie or fantastical love stories.

I appreciate all music depending on my mood. But I'm always in the mood for soul and funk music.
