After a short time, they divorced and Nyjah moved with his father to San Lorenzo. His mother wanted Nyjah to stay with her in California, but his father did not allow it and he had to move. During his childhood, Nyjah was fond of skateboarding and every day he dealt with this sport. He had several skateboards he used for training, and his father always allowed him to train in his spare time.

He was not very interested in school and for learning and he always used his time to skateboarding. During his childhood, he had been in poor relationship with his father many times. Nyjah claimed that his father often had violent behavior and that he was often nervous.

He lived with his father for the next 5 years and then decided to return to USA. He promised that when he became successful and rich, he would return to San Lorenzo and buy the house in which he lived in. He left and remained in a bad relationship with his father.

When he returned to the US, Nyjah came to live with his mother and he was planning to participate in skateboard tournaments. He started with serious trainings and spent every day in the skateboarding. He had great motivation and wanted to become a successful athlete and to secure his life in a financial way.

After the second tournament in which he participated, Nyjah experienced a knee injury, due to which he had to take a break of 6 months. He stated that it was the hardest time of his career and that he felt that he would no longer be able to deal with this sport.

After recovering, he immediately devoted himself to training and applied to participate in the next tournament. In this tournament, he proved that he recovered from injury and managed to win the 1st place. With his 15 years of age, he was one of the greatest talents and people thought that he would soon be the best in the world.
