From navigating the difficulties of racial division in a small Central Florida town to writing passionate columns on race, culture, and politics - my projects have been tied together by a desire to tell stories that are often neglected. As online editor for Sparks Magazine, I've focused on increasing Asian American representation in the media and fostering greater awareness of Asian American issues on campus.

My name is Nicole Dan and I'm a fourth year political science and journalism major at the University of Florida graduating in May 2018.

Over the past year I've immersed myself data and coding, from my political science research to building web apps.
