Public Service Announcement: Do not let this highly photogenic young artist fool you, as he my friends, is a textbook classic jokester. While the likeability meter is off the charts with Niko, he has proven to be the class clown of his age group while in camp. It has been an enjoyable challenge to find strategies to keep him connected with the group, mindful of his actions, and accountable to our daily participation agreement. The empowerment he feels to be himself with at Upturn Arts is so important, and as he continues to mature in his modeling of our culture norms at camp, he will become more effective in utilizing his charm more inclusively.
