Nifty Nevaeh


Skylar Beckford, Reporter

Nevaeh Harris is a fifth grader at Corry Intermediate School and is the youngest among five children. She was born on February 10, 2010, and is currently eleven years old.

Nevaeh’s favorite way to spend time is by watching her favorite anime or drawing. She talks about her hobby of drawing by saying, “I love to draw because I can create worlds that aren’t real. It makes me happy.” Some of her favorite animes include “Attack On Titan,” “Black Butler,” and “Haikyuu.”

Nevaeh also loves her pets, and her favorite is her cat, Phoenix. I asked Nevaeh how she feels about entering middle school next year, and her response was heartwarming, to say the least. “I’m excited. I get to meet more people, and I can’t wait to be one of the bigger kids.”

I’ve heard a lot of responses from middle and high schoolers, so I was curious to see how someone younger, like Nevaeh, has felt about the changes that have taken place in school over the last year. “It’s kind of sad, but it could be a lot worse.” She refers to the changes by saying, “A lot of people are upset about not going out, but I like it. I can stay home and eat all the food I want.” I asked Nevaeh what she would like to do in the future, and she responded with, “I don’t know yet, but maybe one day I can be an animator.”

I concluded the interview by asking for Nevaeh’s favorite piece of advice that she’s ever received. “Just be who you are.” She continues by saying, “People might judge you, but that doesn’t matter. Don’t let them stop you.” How inspirational!
