Student Testimonials

Hey Aikan Fam! My name is Arysia but you can call me Joy :) I've been in the program for about 4 months now and I already learned so much from Mrs. Lenny and my classmates! I Can't wait to learn even more and get my first job! 

 

A little about me is that I play Professional Basketball, I work for the San Antonio Spurs, I'm a Sub teacher, I love making Youtube videos (It's called "inJOY Life" if you want to check it out), and I love making skits on TikTok and Instagram. So I'm definitely trying to expand and exercise my talents, and I think this program will help in so many ways :) 

 

- Joy :)
