Exceptional Student Oct 2018
Big congratulations are in order for Sophie, the Hikari Ryuza Center’s newest “Student of the Quarter!”
Sophie has earned this recognition because of her tremendous self-discipline and caring heart. She may be little, but she’s big on the inside, in more ways than one. In class we never have to call twice for her attention. She’s the first to jump in and help her fellow classmates, sets a wonderful example of protocol and etiquette and never falls shy in the department of enthusiasm. She’s quite a Jutsuka! We interviewed her so everyone could get to know her a little better. Without further ado, we present: Sophie!
