Our August Child of the Month is Nysa Martin, a rising third grader at Owings Mills Elementary School who would like to be an astronaut when she grows up. In the meantime, she is a pretty grounded kid with an interest in service.
Her most recent project focuses on finding ways to help people get along better. She and her godmother are painting river rocks with inspirational words and leaving them in public places to encourage others to be more positive.
For her 8th birthday, Nysa also donated books, clothes and toys to a shelter for each gift she received.
Nysa has been dancing with the Baltimore County Youth Ballet since she was 3 and this past spring was a hedgehog in their production of “Alice in Wonderland.”
Congratulations Nysa! Thank you for thinking of our community.
