About Me

Hello and welcome to my personal space! I am Nicole Hardy, and I am thrilled to share my journey with you – a path that has led me through the realms of education, the arts, and journalism, with a special focus on performing arts education.

My Teenage Years

My fascination with the written word and the arts began in my teenage years. It was a time of exploration and discovery, where I first dabbled in writing and found myself captivated by the world of performing arts. These formative years laid the foundation for my later pursuits, as I started to understand the power of storytelling and the impact it can have on individuals and society.

College Years

My passion for journalism and arts took a more defined shape during my college years. I attended the University of Arts, an institution that nurtured my love for culture and artistic expression. Here, I pursued a Master’s in Journalism, with a focus on arts and culture journalism. This period was crucial in honing my skills in reporting and analysis, allowing me to blend my love for the arts with the rigor of journalistic writing.

Adult Life and Career

Post-college, I embarked on what has now been over a decade-long career in journalism. My work primarily revolves around education and the arts, with a special emphasis on performing arts education. I have been fortunate to witness and report on the vibrant interplay between education and the performing arts, a niche that has proven both challenging and incredibly rewarding.

As a journalist, I am known for my thorough and discerning coverage. My articles are not just reports; they are narratives that seek to uncover the deeper stories behind performing arts education. Whether it’s analyzing trends, covering events, or profiling notable figures in the field, my goal has always been to provide insightful, engaging, and thought-provoking content.

My career has been a journey of constant learning and growth. Each story I cover, each interview I conduct, adds to my understanding of the arts and its role in shaping our society. As an authoritative figure in this domain, I take great pride in my ability to articulate complex ideas and bring forth stories that might otherwise go unheard.

I believe that journalism, particularly in the field of arts and culture, is not just about reporting facts; it’s about capturing the essence of human experience and creativity. It’s a responsibility I carry with pride and passion.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I invite you to explore my work and join me in my ongoing exploration of the arts and education.
