Nikianna Timesha Williams was born on February 25th, 1994 to Roxanne Arlene Williams and Timothy Jr. Percy Simmons. She grew up in the rural village of Diamonds and attended the Diamonds Government School, after which she attended the St. Joseph’s Convent Marriaqua (SJCM) where she discovered her love for Caribbean history.
Through the study of history, she became fascinated by Nelson Mandela for his strength and his work for black Africans.
After completing five years at SJCM, she graduated with nine (9) CSEC passes and pursued studies in History, Sociology and Communication Studies at the St Vincent and the Grenadines Community College- Division of Arts, Sciences and General Studies (SVGCC-DASGS).
In 2013, she enrolled at the SVGCC – Division of Teacher Education to pursue a teaching career, a childhood dream. However, after an experience during her teaching practicum exercise, an interest in becoming a child psychologist was unearthed. Nikianna now aspires to become a child psychologist.
She holds a great sense of admiration for her mother – a single mother of six (6) who has worked tirelessly to ensure that all of her children are well taken care of. She credits her mother’s resilience and hard work for shaping her into the young woman she is today.
Her interests lie in dancing, poetry and short story writing, hairstyling and dramatizing.
One of Nikianna’s passions is to eliminate child hunger in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
