promises good cheers to everyone as 2023 ended with immense gratefulness for the year that was and an excellent warm welcome to the upcoming one. Nick Vera Perez has simply planted many seeds that are all ready to be sown this year. In 2023, he won the coveted international male pageant of wit, charity, and tourism with numerous special awards representing the USA in the Mr. United Nations International World Finals 2023. He was on the cover of three magazines in 2023: Bisaya, a Visayan magazine of Manila Bulletin, KINGS, a World Class Kings Publications, and the Via Times News Magazine. He produced and sold out a one-night-only show in Chicago, Our Christmas, that gained 100% positive reviews for professionalism, world-class staging, and well-balanced vocal quality and prowess. He also celebrated his first year in his nursing employment at RUSH Health System since he returned to nursing after a 2-year hiatus taking care of his mom. In 2020, he left bedside nursing and decided to take care of his mother in a private-duty nursing capacity when his mom suffered a stroke attack. He continued to think of the future and planted the seeds of education, music, and prosperity with three words in mind: focus, consistency, and perseverance. The goals were to hit ten recorded albums, win an international pageant, graduate with a doctoral degree, and reestablish NVP1World when he hits Golden. He turned 50 last October when he celebrated life with private families and friends, which he considers stronghold catalysts. He achieved five albums, won the Mr. United Nations International in almost all eight categories, revived NVP1World with the classiest smashing success of his soft reopening offering show, Our Christmas 2023 held last December 10, 2023, at the Versailles Ballrooms A, B, C of The Double Tree Hilton Hotel by Skokie, IL. (Photos are inserted) and soon, graduating with a doctorate degree in nursing on January 19, 2024, in San Antonio, Texas. Mr. Nick Vera Perez was also nominated for the Community Hero Spotlight Award 2023, as sponsored by the Com Ed, and is awaiting results. His win will be shared with his chosen Smile World charity.
In 2024, he will continue sailing education as he pursues practicum hours for his FNP side (DNP-NP) title (a back-to-back degree requiring intense nursing practice). He also wishes prosperity and success to all as 2024 shares bright strength and zeal with the Dragon spirit of the year. The charities he founded under NVP1Smile World Charities will continue to serve humanity as he focuses more on ending hunger one step at a time. As part of his role as the Mr. United Nations International 2023, his platform of helping others help others help commences with programs stretching from Spring until he ends his term by October this year.
