Nicole Nadwodny

Mate #192

Voice Part: Soprano

Hometown: Lansdale, PA

Solos: Saving All My Sinning, Want You Back

Major: Cognitive & Brain Sciences, Spanish

Bio: Suburban Philadelphia, born and raised, Nicole Nadwodny is beyond excited to be the shortest ‘mate. Nicole can’t believe that singing has become such a big part in her life, especially because the thought of singing karaoke in front of her close friends used to be terrifying for her. After years of theater and playing violin, Nicole finally tried singing and never looked back! Nicole aspires to be half as amazing as the other musical greats in her family: her great uncle (a rock star in Australia) and Lady Gaga (ask her and she’ll explain).

Aside from singing with the ‘Mates, Nicole can be found watching cooking shows in Spanish, eating peanut butter, and playing her ukulele (she likes to think that she’s artsy). Just like Buddy the Elf, smiling is her favorite and she thinks that candy should be one of the five main food groups. Nicole’s claims to fame are that she can make Italian food from scratch and that she gives pretty great massages. You can probably find her making bad jokes with her roommate or trying to reach things in high places.

Overall, Nicole can’t wait to have so many adventures and do what she loves with her new a-MATES-ing (ouch…) family!
