In school and on the basketball court she pays attention and always is focused. She has been in advance classes her whole life and always has a strong work ethic. She has always been on honor roll and recently just got a letter in the mail saying she is on honor roll once again! It also stated that she has a higher GPA than 3.25 and was asked to do summits for her school. She is very social, and loves to meet new people. Inia is very friendly and serves as a leader in the classroom as well as on the basketball court. When it comes to sports, this young lady plays her hardest. While only in the 6th grade, Inia plays with Lady Express United, on their 7th Grade GOLD and 8th Grade GOLD teams. She loves basketball but also played football, she tried softball, soccer, track, and is now trying to play tennis.
