I had the opportunity to sit down with 8th grader Nivea Triplett and talk to her about how she feels about coming into highschool, more specifically Topeka West. Nivea is currently attending French Middle School and is very happy their. “I love all of my teacher and most of my classes.” In her free time she said she likes to do sports and hang out with her friends.
