She works hard on her independent study course, and is utilizing strategies to help her avoid distraction in completing her assignments. Kenya is taking on additional hours at work to help her family and is a good big sister to her siblings. Kenya asks great questions, is a great listener, and is always looking to learn more. She is a pleasure to have in class and brings out the best in her classmates by being a friend and role model.”Another says “She comes to class with a positive attitude and always gives 100%. She wants to learn and always asking questions to better herself. She is a role model and actively encourages everyone to participate.”
Kenya is active in Bring Change to Mind, and plans to compete in Basketball and Track this year. She loves making new friends, striving for educational success, and staying positive with and for those around her. On top of all this, she also holds a part time job on the weekends.
