A writer in-the-making, a reader of poetry and stories, a listener of feel-good music and interesting conversations, and a lover of art and culture.

Hi! Welcome to my little corner of the Internet. 

My name is Nicole Isabel Abriam and I like to write. Here, I like to document and share my op-eds and personal essays, pieces on arts and culture, my occasional flurries of poetic inspirations and literature, and through my series Rising Flower, Gen-Z in NYC, and Nicole's Food Cravings, my self-care journey, life as a New Yorker, and food! 

I have a B.A. in Journalism + Design with a minor in Communication Design from The New School and have published in collegiate publications like Her Campus and The New School Free Press. Browse my portfolio should you be curious to read more. 

Other than being a writer, I am a nomadic dweller and have lived in the Philippines, a suburban town outside south London, Orlando, and now New York City. Through my writing, I like to share my perspectives, my experiences, funny anecdotes worth sharing, and my journey in navigating life as a twenty-something. 


  1. Hey-- I was trying to change your blog button to your new one on my blog, but for some reason it's still only the old one..? Not sure if this is just a glitch in my blog or something, but just thought I'd let you know and see if there was something going on with the coding or something. Sorry to bother you, it's probably just my own glitch, but let me know if you see something and I will try again :)

  2. Hey!

    I studied art in high school...which is about as far as my art knowledge extends, unfortunately!
    I love art theory, though! And fondly studied most artistic movement chronologically.

    Which art movement would you say is your favourite? I really like fauvism.


  3. Hey Nicole! You commented on my blog a while back so I thought I'd check you out; your blog looks pretty! I am also a lit enthusiast (by lit I mean literature, although I would consider myself to be lit as well) and aspiring writer! Question: when you say you're a student, do you mean high school or college? (just curious; I've heard of 16-year-old college students so just wondering if you are one bc that would be SO COOL)

    I'm gonna go patrol the rest of your blog, but just wanted to say this About page is great! ^-^

  4. Hey Nicole!
    I saw your comment on my site (kashjain.com) about Knives and Daises. I have a few questions for you about it, but I dthink it would be better to ask elsewhere instead of cluttering your comments section. Could you DM me on instagram? My account is kashwrites. Thanks!

  5. YOU AND YOUR BLOG ARE GORGEOUS???? and your writing is slaying me hahaha <3

  6. You look extremely beautiful in the photo above!
    Best wishes on all of your future endeavours!
