The adage “To whom much is given, much is expected” is one of the pillars of my personal philosophy. I strongly believe that to be truly successful, both in business and in life, one must avidly give back to the community one is part of.

One of the reasons why I founded #NikkyFeedingSouls is I want to do my part in building a better and kinder world. There is more to feeding a person than simply filling their body with food. You have to nourish their mind, heart, and soul too. Feeding a person’s soul encourages them to open their heart to others, share in their experiences, and build a community with them. In other words, you become one with them.

There are other, and shall we say more practical, ways in which I have given back and continuously giving to my community:

TRAEF President’s Circle

The Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation (TRAEF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing educational opportunities to people who want to become part of the Texas food and culinary industries. These educational opportunities come in the form of student scholarships, workforce development training, and mentorships. Part of TRAEF’s funding comes from donations, and those who have committed most to the organization’s endeavors become a member of the TRAEF President’s Circle. As a member of the President’s Circle, I have pledged to give over $25,000 in the course of ten years to support TRAEF’s projects.

Les Dames d'Escoffier

Les Dames D’Escoffier Dallas

Les Dames D’Escoffier Dallas is a chapter of Les Dames D’Escoffier International, a global philanthropic organization made up of women leaders in the hospitality, food, and beverage industries. These women dedicate a portion of their time and resources to sharing knowledge, providing mentorship and education opportunities, and supporting other women in these fields professionally and personally. As a Dame, I donate my time and resources to the organization’s projects. Additionally, I regularly participate in Les Dames’ annual events.

DonorsChoose.org

I have set up my Asian Mint restaurants in such a way that a portion of its sales support DonorsChoose.org. DonorsChoose.org is an organization that links potential donors to public school teachers in need of funding for their various classroom projects. These classroom projects can range from taking students to educational field trips to buying calculators for their math classes. The organization is well known for its transparency and efficiency in delivering funding to teachers who requested them.

Aside from these endeavors, I am linked with The Hockaday School, where I am an alumna. I join in their events that require alumni participation and give when needed.
