Professor Peoples writes "Nikkita's understanding of the historical,
evolutionary perspective of society is absolutely phenomenal. Her
instincts on subtlety is easily remarkable. She is easily the best
anthropology student I have ever had."
Dr. Albert Eisenstein writes "Nikkita's understanding of particle
Physics and string theory compares to the most fervent researchers on the
topic. I am completely convinced that if she were to proceed in a professorship
in Theoretic Particle Physics, she just might be the one to
solve Unification Theory.
