Nickiera J., Skyline Class of 2022

Nickiera is a student from Keysborough Secondary College (Banksia) who looks forward to meeting new people and finding out more things about herself through Skyline. Despite constantly struggling from being Hard Of Hearing, she has grown lots of resilience and it makes her happy knowing that she is not letting this issue pull her down.

In early January 2020, Nickiera moved from one side of the city to the other, started a new school and got a job. She is extremely proud of adapting so well to her new surroundings.

Nickiera is passionate about making herself a better person and in understanding the importance of education, she hopes to spread knowledge of indigenous culture to her peers. Nickiera is also inspired by her mother and loves learning about her Czech culture.

In her free time, Nickiera loves playing basketball and footy as it helps her regain focus and concentration when she finds herself struggling.
