About me

Bonjour! My name is Niya. I grew up in Los Angeles but have spent the last eight years here in Olympia/Tumwater. I am a sophomore here at SMU majoring in English while minoring in communications. In my short time here at SMU, I have braved chemistry with Dr. Axtell, while battling Dr. Mead's seemingly tortuous prompts. In hopes of one day writing about world affairs as a journalist I am currently taking my third year of French. Having won a scholarship to live abroad in Peru, my love for travel and adventure has been intensified. Aside from travel, I enjoy cooking, tennis, good food, and good friends!
