Meet a New Tar Heel: Nickolas Bleykhman

Nickolas looks forward to a new routine that includes studying computer science and making lifetime connections.

After a few lessons, ballroom dancing just clicked for first-year student Nickolas Bleykhman.

The international champion in Latin dancing practices six days a week for about three hours a day. The routine has helped him establish a work ethic that he says will help him not just in dancing but in all aspects of his life.

Bleykhman brings that strong work ethic with him to Carolina. He is looking forward to taking classes and meeting people with similar interests.

The connections and friendships — they don’t just last through those four years as an undergrad. They last for a whole lifetime.
