Princess Nneka Ayika

Student Reporter

Princess is a freshman at the University of Louisiana Monroe, currently majoring in biology. She is from Lagos, Nigeria but decided to pursue her college degree in the U.S. The main reason for her doing so is because she believes in adventure and wanted to have one. She has two older brothers who are in Monroe, one also attending ULM, majoring in Bio-Chemistry and the other seeking a place in the Army.

She loves to write, draw and paint during her free time. Being a freshman she is yet to be heavily involved with organizations on campus but would like to be in the future. Princess also dreams of dabbling in the art of animation, specifically to animate with Disney.
