Nikayla Kussatz
New to the Allen Flame staff this year is freshman Nikayla Kussatz from Gardner, Kan.. Kussatz attended Gardner-Edgerton High School where she was active in her school's yearbook class while also playing softball and volleyball. While in high school she was able to get some experience in the newspaper due to her helping out with her school paper when she was needed. Being a part of Allen’s online student paper, Kussatz is hoping to not just learn more about the newspaper, but also heightening her writing skills. While attending Allen, she plans on majoring in pre-med and is also on an academic scholarship. She became interested in medicine after she had to go through physical therapy in high school and thought itwas something she wanted to do as a career. Of all her classes so far this semester, Kussatz says she really enjoys psychology because she likes learning about the human mind. One of her biggest goals for her first year at Allen is to do well academically and also meet a lot of new friends. After finishing at Allen, she plans on either transferring to the University of Kansas or University of Missouri-Kansas City to continue her studies. A few fun facts about Kussatz are: she is the oldest sibling; in her free time she likes to take long naps or go work out; and she can catch grapes in her mouth. Those wanting to know more about her can follow her on Twitter at @nnnikayla.
