Don’t try to pronounce my name. It seems like nobody can get it right. So… uh… hello everyone. Welcome to my page. My name is Niko, and I am a junior at Freestyle Academy, enrolled in Digital Media, English, and Animation. I am 16 years old, and I look like this moron to the left.

 

What I’d like to share about myself is that I do a few things outside of school. I am a Martial Artist who does mainly Tae Kwon Do. I have been a martial artist for the past several years, and are now an instructor. I also play a bit of classical guitar and have been doing so for at least a few years. I also attend the Holy Virgin Russian Orthodox Church in Palo Alto and have been an altar boy for several years. I play quite a few sports as well. Basketball, Ping Pong, Tennis, Biking, and a sprinkle of various other sports here and there are the ones I enjoy. I also do enjoy playing video games.

 

My origins trace back to a small country known as Georgia, a former Communist-controlled nation that is located between the Caspian and the Black Sea. Both of my parents are from Georgia, and so is my entire extended family. They immigrated here a couple of decades ago because my dad got a job offer here. I was born here in the Bay Area, and have lived here all my life.

 

My freestyle experience so far is… yeah. Prior to taking Freestyle, I did a lot of film stuff in middle school, being the main editor for the morning announcements in 7th and 8th grade, and doing various projects throughout those years, such as 3D printing, short films, and stop motions. Final Cut Pro was the program that I got used to using while I was in middle school, and it was a nice experience. Now, I have to ditch everything I knew and learn Adobe. I took Freestyle because I felt like it. I have a few passion projects that are linked together that I want to do when I go off to college. Hopefully, freestyle provides me with the skills I need for it.
