Nicola Roux, MCAS '20, is from Vienna, VA, and is a Psychology BS major on the premed track with a minor in Medical Humanities (and would have about 12 other minors if time would allow). Nicola is passionate about supporting survivors and ending sexual violence on college campuses and beyond. In her time as a trainer so far, she has enjoyed facilitating better conversations with her friends and peers about supporting survivors, navigating healthy relationships, and consent. Nicola is committed to informed advocacy and care for others, with a focus on issues of sexual violence and the intersections of gender, sex, sexuality and healthcare. She hopes to go on to medical school to become an OB/GYN, and her loftiest goals include redefining what the term “women’s healthcare” means and working towards trauma-informed, inclusive, and accessible healthcare for all humans. In addition to being a Bystander, Nicola serves as the co-president of GlobeMed, rides on the BC Club Equestrian team, and volunteers as a crisis counselor for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center. Nicola enjoys waking up ridiculously early to go hiking, tasting every version of black raspberry ice cream to ever exist, petting other people’s dogs, reading inside during thunderstorms, and baking banana bread to avoid responsibilities.
