My name is Nichole Hank and I live in a small arctic community in Point Hope, Alaska. This upcoming year I will be a senior in high school. Another baby was added to my large family of 9 in January. Traveling is something my family enjoys! I am a whaling captain’s daughter. I have been involved in sports since the second grade. My volleyball and girls basketball team has won the State Champion title this last school year. The state recognized me in both those sports. I am currently taking summer classes with Ilisagvik College. I’ve participated in several science programs since middle school. A career in science is something I want to have. I am leaning towards a vet because of my love for animals.
