Nina's Profile

About

My name is Nina and I am an Entrepreneurial Studies major at a local college in my home state.
I also studied Music Industry and decided to continue my education in Entrepreneurial studies as I want to open my own music venue for local musicians in the near future.

Aside from music, I LOVE animals. My house is full of pets including 1 parrot, 2 cats, 2 chinchillas, 3 dogs & 8 sugar gliders!

I love making jewlery, clothing, etc., my mom taught me how to sew when I was very young and have continued since. I also love to knit with traditional styles as well as modern ones. I recently began making hats, scarves, and handbags using a loom technique.
However, I have a neurological disorder called Essential Tremor which causes me to shake whenever I do minute things (such as brushing my teeth, writing, putting on makeup, etc)…

I love making jewlery, clothing, etc., my mom taught me how to sew when I was very young and have continued since. I also love to knit with traditional styles as well as modern ones. I recently began making hats, scarves, and handbags using a loom technique.
However, I have a neurological disorder called Essential Tremor which causes me to shake whenever I do minute things (such as brushing my teeth, writing, putting on makeup, etc). This has made it increasingly difficult for me to do a lot of the things I love but I will continue to try as long as I can. I have had this disorder since I was about 13 (so for about 10 years now) and have learned some tricks in order to deal with it.

When you buy a piece of my handmade jewlery, a percentage of the proceeds goes to finding a cure for Essential Tremor (ET) through the International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF essentialtremor.org).
Currently, doctors aren't even sure what causes ET so it makes it very difficult for researchers to find a cure. However, through organizations like IETF there is hope that in the near future, we will not only know what causes ET but we will have a cure.
