What is your full name?

Nicole Elisabeth Zimmermann

Niki, Cole, Nikizimz, Zimmy, etc, etc.

Well first and foremost, a car that gets me from point A to point B without any problems. Owning a classic Volkswagen Van wouldn’t be too shabby either ;)

what youth girl we adore nicole zimmerman

What do you wonder about the most?

Life, death, everything in between. I spend a lot of time wondering about a lot of things~

What’s been your biggest mistake?

I’m about to sound super basic, but I am pretty content with how my life is at the moment and without the mistakes I’ve made along the way it wouldn’t be the way it is and I wouldn’t have learned the lessons I’ve learned that have helped me grow. So yeah, nothing really.

What skill/talent do you wish you possessed?

Probably being able to perfect playing an instrument, piano and sax are my fav. It would also be cool if I could actually sing…

If you could live in any time period when would it by and why?

The 70’s/80’s. I feel such a strong pull to this time period and mostly everything in my life is inspired by it—the style, the music, the lifestyle, etc.

If you had to spend $1000 today, what are you doing?

Roadtrippin’.

What’s the last thing you created?

I created this random collage not too long ago. Just took a bunch of magazines and whatnot and put some shit together. Not really sure what the point of it was, but it looked cool. Haha.

Most likely show to binge on Netflix?

Shameless. All day, every day.

Favorite Hobbies?

Hiking, exploring new territory, looking at cool houses, reading poetry, writing poetry, creating, destroying, etc.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?

Stay positive, and let the universe work its magic.

Surfers or skaters?

Surfers, allllll the way.

Whats more likely to be real, ghosts or aliens?

Ghosts. I’ve experienced them.
