Nicole wished to be a published author

“Laughter in chaos” is one of 18-year old Nicole’s life mottos.  No wonder she chose it as the title for her wish – to have her collection of poems published in book form. 

When Laughter in Chaos was printed and published, the aspiring author stopped by the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Metro New York and Western New York office and read some of her favorite poems. She also signed books for her family and friends and staff members at what promises to be the first of many book signings for her.

Nicole, who has Lupus, has certainly had many moments of chaos in her life. However, she knows how important it is to focus more on the smiles and laughter life offers.  One way she has done that is through writing. Her book is the culmination of years of writing.  Nicole penned her first poem while in 3rd grade, and has pursued poetry ever since. Though she has been writing for years, she says her book took her about two years to compile – a true labor of love.

For Nicole, seeing her poems in book form is “amazing.” She says her poems “are the best representation of myself.” Laughter in Chaos is who she is, and now others can experience her strong spirit thanks to her generous sharing through this enduring wish.
