Profile: Neesha Milligan
Milligan is a fifth grader at the preK-8 All Saints School on
135th Street in Manhattan. If you ask her about her
school she will tell you that the students are looking forward
to the much-needed library currently under construction.
English class she has read Stuart Little and The
Trumpet of the Swan.
But her favorite subjects are math and science. “I like long division
in math, and the planets in science,” she says. In her music class,
she sings gospel songs, and the class performs annual Christmas
and spring concerts.
But summer vacation is coming soon. While she loves school, these
days Neesha is more concerned with getting a dog. “I think I’ll
name it Gypsy or Tutu,” she says, excitedly thinking about her
future pet. She will also turn 11 in this month. Happy birthday,
