NeishaLiving on a farm means Neisha can explore the world around her and spend her non-school hours on bikes, rope swings, and tree huts—something many children would love to do. For eight-year-old Neisha—who is in an accelerated school program—maths is "cool" and art is "fun". She also enjoys singing, hip hop dancing, swimming, horse riding, cooks up a storm in the kitchen, and has perfected the art of making sushi.

When not doing any of the above Neisha can be seen helping out her parents in the orchard, playing with her blue heeler and two cats, and looking after her two guinea pigs. She also spends time with her friends in her tree house, and a climbing wall on the orchard. "When I grow up I want to work with the SPCA and rescue sick animals," Neisha told us.
