Success Story: Niche Bryant

Niche Bryant is 15 years old and is doing so amazing in the Live Light Live Right program under the supervision of Dr. Dhupher. These two photos represent the incredible change in Niche from when he began the program from 2015 to 2019. Niche loves to participate in the exercise programs and including the special events. When Niche started in the program he was not interested in attending any of the special events. His mother always encouraged him and explained all the benefits to his health and wellbeing. His mom no longer as to ask him to go to events or any of the programs.  His self-esteem is up to the roof and she is so proud of him. He walks with confidence now. It is working!! His blood pressure and stamina have improved. Niche is now top two of his gym class for most laps run in the physical test. When he started high school in September of 2017 something really clicked. He wanted to do better. He now strives both physically and academically. Niche is in the honors program maintaining a 90 average. I know it has everything to do with feeling better about himself. His parents cannot take credit for Niche’s success because Niche works hard at everything he does. Niche does not have any snacks or fast food on the weekdays and also himself one cheat day. His parents are very appreciative to all the staff including, Dr. Dhuper for treating Niche like he is one of her own children, Ms. Rena, for always making sure Niche has all his appointments and knows about all the events, Ms. Ebony for always making sure Niche is doing proper exercises and always encouraging him, and Ms. Kim, for always keeping Niche on his toes.
