My name is Niki Smithers. I am a public relations professional, student, sports enthusiast, and most importantly, dog-lover. I originally started this blog as an assignment for one of my college course, but soon saw a bigger opportunity. One thing you’ll notice quickly is I value the power of individual voices. Walking the Wire is my voice. While I have lived a very blessed life, I’ve also gone through my fair share of hardships. My experiences have made be appreciate the positive and negatives of every topic or situation. In this blog, I’ll shed light on the good, the bad, the beautiful and the ugly. Ultimately, it all goes into shaping the world we live in today.
