Nicky Moore began her career as a beauty therapist when she was just 16 years of age. After many years in the industry she continued to study natural therapies, counselling, and other personal interest subjects, before ending up teaching at a private skin care and aesthetics collage in Wollongong.
During this time, the birth of her two children Mikaleigh (6) and Tristan (4), reignited Nicky’s childhood passion for writing, and in 2008 Nicky published ‘Sistahood- A journal of Self discovery’ for young girls. The book, which was co-authored by Nicky and her Big Sister Natalie Bassingthwaighte, was published by ABC books and aims to help young girls set goals for their lives and overcome the obstacles they’ll face along the way. It also helps young girls to find happiness in themselves and to respect the differences in those around them.
Having returned to university in 2005, Nicky’s studies into Asian Pacific development and politics, took her to Malaysia for six months in 2008, where she studied and travelled through out South East Asia, gaining great insights into the conditions and challenges faced by young girls from very different cultures. Upon returning to Australia, Nicky has just completed the first book of a new fiction series aimed at exploring these issues in an entertaining and youth oriented way. Nicky hopes that through increased understanding of different cultures and experiences, young girls will be better able to appreciate that happiness can be found in any situation if they only believe they can find it.
As a busy mother, writer, full time student, and ambassador for the SISTER2sister foundation, Nicky is proud to support the work of all the incredible women who are helping these at risk teenage girls discover their own happiness. Nicky is also pleased to support NIVEA, and thanks them for their support of SISTER2sister, and their fantastic skin care products.
