Top Teen--Knicera Boddie

Knicera Boddie Knicera Boddie

Knicera Boddie, an 11th grade student at Beach High, has a gift for gab and she's using it in a positive way. We caught up with her doing one of the things she loves most: reciting poetry.

"I also like reading poetry by Nikki Giovanni and Maya Angelou, and things like that," she told us.

But she barely has the time. "I'm the president of SECME, that's the science, engineering, communication, and mathematics enrichment program, and I'm also a member of the youth council. I just got inducted."

Plus she's the 11th grade class vice president and a member of the United Negro Women's Council. With all that, Knicera still has great grades, especially in her favorite class.

"In all my science classes, I've never had a grade below 90, so that's my favorite subject," she said.

And she plans good grades when she heads to college in a couple of years. Her goal: to get her degree in Washington, DC. "I would like to go to Howard University and major in psychology."

Howard, because many of her family members have gone there, too, so she wants to carry on the tradition.

Knicera Boddie, this week's WTOC Top Teen.

In addition to all her other activities, Knicera is also a member of the group Future Black Leaders of America.
