At Nick Takes Over Your School’s first stop, kids didn’t hold back from shouting out what makes them unique individuals. Among all the kids having a well-deserved day of fun was Xavier Alejandrino, a 10-year-old Nickster who couldn’t help but express his excitement.
“I am weird and mysterious and I’m happy to share that I am like this, because I can comfortably do what I want to do,” said Alejandrino. He added that he finds inspiration to be comfortable with who he is by watching the aspirational and unique lead characters in Nickelodeon’s shows such as Henry Danger and The FairlyOdd Parents.
Kids can expect school to be more awesome when Nickelodeon takes over their school. They will get to play fun games, and develop vital skills and a love for life-long learning, as they vie for the ultimate reward, Nickelodeon’s iconic slime!
