Nikol Johnson- Talking yourself through it!
What an amazing show! I had the opportunity to talk with Nikol J, and we got into some interesting topics regarding coping, meditation, communication, and more!  Nikol J is a soul writer! She writes from the heart with the intention of provoking thoughts! Her writings are intriguing and influence the audience to visualize, embrace the messages.  Her penmanship allows the art of storytelling to motivate, change people’s perspectives. Nikol found her first love in high school thanks to Ms.Logan, an English teacher at the infamous, George Washington Preparatory High School of Los Angeles, CA. She would always say, “you’re going to be a writer someday!” Of course, Nikol didn’t believe It! Until the end of 1996 rolled around and Nikol J. joined a ghost writer’s team that happened to be writing scripts for famous TV shows like the Jamie Foxx and DL Hughley shows. Money was plentiful and the perks of Hollywood were everything but Nikol had no TV credits or any real control over her writing career. Doors begin to close just as fast as they opened and she couldn’t handle the rejection. Nikol eventually gave up on writing and the wonderful world of entertainment! 2001, she packed her bags, moved to Texas, and established a career in government. By 2009, the passion for writing could no longer be denied. Nikol released her first short film, “Exposed”. The script fell in the hands of a TV Producer at the Houston Media Source. The TV producer was fascinated by the talented writer and immediately begin looking for avenues to introduce Nikol J to the city of Houston. In 2016, Nikol launched Real Talk Chronicles TV Talk show. She appeared as the TV host on several local and PBS channels in Houston. Not to mention, Nikol wrote the content for every show! Your host with the most fell back in love with writing. She joined BWIF and co-wrote 3 short films. It hasn’t been an easy journey but it has been a learning experience. A good experience! Because no matter what, if it’s meant to be, it will be! Nikol is living a dream come true, a FilmLife, and loving every minute of it! She hopes to be remembered for never giving up on her gift from GOD. Nikol has started a reality series called Film Life to capture filmmakers' lives on and off camera! She understands the struggles of being a filmmaker and the importance of never giving up! Email:
