“Upbeat,” “curious” and “motivational” are just a few words that describe Niya, a Senior at John Adams High School in Cleveland, OH who is blossoming in the JKL program!
During her sophomore and junior year, she heard about the JKL program but never had the time to stay after school. For her senior year, though, she made it a goal to be more intentional and decided to finally join the JKL program despite the fact she works 4 days a week and has a packed schedule.
This past Fall semester has exposed Niya to so many first time experiences: the Breast Cancer 5k, Cavaliers games, yoga lessons and exploring the sights outside of her neighborhood. She now regularly implements and shares with her mother the many tips and recipes she gets from the JKL monthly nutrition component.
“Niya is hardworking and has a tremendous amount of integrity. She is one of our JKL leaders and has truly begun to shape the program here at John Adams,” said JKL instructor, Ms. Ware Rembert.
After high school, Niya would like to study the field of criminal justice and become a homicide detective. We wish nothing but greatest for Niya for this spring semester and for whatever the future holds!
