People Behind 10Mins1Page


Nicollette Buddington

From humble beginnings in New Orleans and the Bronx,  Nicollette Buddington always had a love and passion for helping her community. This first-generation American child of Jamaican Immigrants embraced her uniqueness from an early age. If you want to know just who Nicollette is, she is an old soul, a health care educator/ patient advocate, a food connoisseur, a leader, a part of the LGBTQTIA+ community, a sister, mother of three but most of all a lover of life and humanity. Nicollette’s huge heart stems from the love of her family that has guided and encouraged her to follow this path in creating a safe space such as 10mins1page. Seeing a person express their deepest, most inner thoughts on paper that can help them overcome their many challenges is the driving force behind the creation of this extraordinary initiative. As a person who understand the struggles we face in life, Nicollette was led to bring 10Mins1Page to life in the most unconventional way to bring her community together.
