Niya Randolph is an elementary student at Nevada Connections Academy (NCA). She is a native of Las Vegas, Nevada. NCA allows Niya to balance athletics, academics, and family. Below, her dad shares more of her story.
“This is Niya’s first year with NCA and the flexibility in scheduling, self-paced curriculum, and personalized teaching has been the key to creating an atmosphere for her to thrive. NCA offers a tremendous opportunity for Niya to speed up or slow down her course curricula to ensure she comprehends and learns.
Perpetual motion (a constant whirlwind of motion) is a perfect description of Niya. Her daily schedule is rich with athletics, academics, social engagements, and other pursuits. She is often at the center of attention with her outgoing personality, poise, and wit. A gymnast since age four, Niya has been able to balance her athletics with a budding entertainment and academic career.
Niya is a very determined and driven young lady. She considers herself a triple threat –gymnast, entertainer, and future businesswoman. Her immediate goal is a place on the US national gymnastics team!”
