Nick is not only passionate about changing Elon through innovation and entrepreneurship, but it is his life goal to make a profound and lasting impact on the world through his work. A cause that he especially cares about is helping children, whether it be volunteering at the local Boys and Girls Club, at an orphanage, or participating in programs that help children with disabilities.
