Pilnais vārds // Full Name: Nicole Anna LaFonte

Džimšanas datums // Birthday: October 12th 1993

Kur Tu dzīvo? // Where do you live? 

I’m currently living in Danbury, CT but moving to Downers Grove, IL, just outside Chicago, at the end of May!

Apraksti Idiālo randiņu! // Describe the perfect date!

Honestly, just a lot of laughs.

Uz kurieni tev gribas ceļot? // Where would you like to travel?

I have a growing list, but among the top are Argentina, New Zealand, and Croatia.

Kur Tu sevi saredzi pēc 10 gadiem? // Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Well, in 10 years I’ll be 33 (eeek!)… In an ideal world, I’d be living on a beach, working as a physician assistant, caring for a dog (or two), and beginning to create a family! I also hope that traveling, both for pleasure and for health service, will be a frequent part of my future.

Kas ir Tavs vislabākais ieradums? Sliktākais? // What is you best and worst habit?

Best habit: I never hit the snooze button.

Worst habit: I go shopping as therapy.

Kas ir Tava vismīļākā grāmata jeb filma? // What is your favorite movie or book?

I can never name just one. Some of my favorite movies include The Prestige, Ace Ventura, Mulan, and the Back to the Future series. My favorite book is any new book I get. I really love to read and have been happy that I’ve been able to make some solid time for it while being out of school (because textbooks don’t count). Recent great reads have included Complications and Me Before You.

Kas ir kautkas neviens nezina par Tevi? // Tell us something people do not know about you!

Well, I tried to keep this a secret but… I chipped both of my front teeth within the past year… at different times. The first time I thought it was kinda funny, but then after the second one, it was just pretty embarrassing. I couldn’t even tell my parents. (Piedošan Mom)

Kā Tu pavadi nedēļas nogali? // How do you spend your weekends?

Most weekends I tell myself I’m going to catch up on sleep and lounge around, but then the weekend comes and I can’t sit still. I like to spend my time with family or friends doing various activities. This past year I got to travel a lot over the weekends, doing things like skiing, hiking, and checking out new cities. It’s been a fun time, but I’m sure my upcoming year my weekends will include only studying.

No Kā Tev ir bailes? // What are you afraid of?

Spiders and snakes. One has too many legs and the other doesn’t have enough. They creep me out!

Kā Tu pavadi vasaras? // How do you spend your summers?

Well, since graduating from college, I’ve had to do this thing called work. It’s a bummer on nice days. However, in free time I spend as much time as I can outdoors: soaking up the sun, BBQing, hiking, going to the beach, running, etc… and of course, heading up to Nometne whenever I can!

Ko Tu studē? // What do you study or did you study?

I studied Biomedical Engineering during my undergraduate career and am about to enter a Physician Assistant Studies program for a master’s degree.

Kur Tu studē? // Where do you study or where did you study?

I went to Syracuse University for my undergraduate career and will be attending Midwestern University outside Chicago for my graduate degree.

Vai Tu spēle sportus? // Do you play any sports?

I’ve always been really involved with soccer throughout my life, but recently it has been difficult to find a consistent team. I played in a couple summer leagues last year, and hope to join one when I move out to Chicago!

Kas ir tava vismīļākā GVV balles dziesma? // What was your favorite GVV or Nometne song?

I really love the Nometne song that Alvis Brigis wrote about the camp. It’s fun and always brings back a lot of good memories.

Kas ir tavs vismīļākais latviešū ēdiens? // What is your favorite Latvian food?

Gotta love anything potatoes. And pierogi of course.

Kā tu plāno kultivēt savu latvietību nākamos gadus? // In the future, how do you plan on cultivating your Latvian heritage?

I plan to continue attending various Latvian events and learning more of the language. I think it would also be awesome to learn how to make some traditional meals in the future too.

Pastāsti par kādu reizi kad tu esi palīdzējis kādam citam! // Tell us about a time you helped someone else.

Going to shamelessly use this question to inspire people to stop and just listen to others more often. We get so involved in our own lives we sometimes forget how insignificant or minute our own problems are compared to others’ or the worlds’. Listening and moreover, really trying to understand others has definitely has been one of my focuses as a healthcare worker over these past several years, but also as a human. I believe that if I take an extra moment out of my day to just hear someone else out that I can help them in many ways, whether I have the answers for them or not. Sometimes all people need is to say things aloud in order to figure it out in their own heads.

Apraksti ideālo randiņu!

Mans ideālais randiņš iesāktos ar mierīgu pastaigu pa parku, vai pa ezermalu. No turnienes mēs aizietu uz labu restorānu paēst vakariņas, kādu labu itāļu vai jūras veltes ēdienu. Pēc tam mēs pārietu majās un mierīgi pavadītu vakaru uz dīvāna skatoties filmu.
