In her own words Nikiva Dionne attributes her potential to "Born and raised in Baltimore I saw talent all around me with no outlet. I watched some of that talent die. I watched some of it written off as a childhood dream. My mother pushed me to leave my comfort zone. In moving to New York I realized dreams didn't die because you grew up, they died because you gave up or because they weren't nurtured and supported. I learned how much the world had to offer but also how competitive it would be. I got smarter, stronger, and more hungry. I began aspiring for things I once never knew existed. There (NY) I learned I could compete and how to do it. No longer afraid of my dreams I embraced them and headed to Hollywood. I'm living my dream. Once God puts his hand on you, you just have to move and sometimes that means literally move and go into a land where HE will show you."
