Maliyah Syed is a middle school student at Minnesota Connections Academy. She has three siblings, Amin, Arman and
Gianna, who also attend Minnesota Connections Academy. Her story is below:
“I feel happy doing my schoolwork at home. I can ask my siblings for help because they are older. I also really like all
my teachers. They are always kind, friendly, and very helpful. My favorite subject is social studies because history is
an interesting subject to learn.
I am passionate about tae kwan do, and I get to perform at tournaments with other team members and my siblings. I also
like riding bikes, using my RipStik, and Rollerblading. To keep in touch with friends, I paint, make crafts, and play
outside games with them.”
What I like most about Connections Academy is being able to learn while being at home.
