Nicole Hauck is a sophomore and a Superfan of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. She’s been a fan since 2012, when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was rebooted into a new television series. Although the 2012 version is her favorite, she loves anything and everything to do with the Turtles. “What mainly got me into it was the adorable design of the 2012 series,” said Nicole. Nicole’s favorite episode is “Slash and Destroy,” which is one of the only episodes where viewers see two of the turtles without their masks.
Nicole is a very creative person who spend most of her time drawing or writing. She has two original characters she writes into the world of the turtles. Her characters are brothers named Kyle and Simon, or Ky and Si. “Ky and Si, the amazing dynamic duo,” Nicole said. She enjoys intertwining their stories and writing backgrounds. Nicole hopes to publish her stories for other fans to enjoy, but hasn’t yet.
The show has also gotten Nicole into other things. The four Turtles, Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello and Raphael are all named after Renaissance artists which Nicole has become a fan of. Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci are her two favorites. She’s also made wonderful friends through the show that she has been able to connect with at school.
