I was born in Oklahoma and from a young age me and my brother struggled with family abuse. At the age of three a loving family took me as froster care parents and at the age of four they adopted me and we moved to New York city. Due to the uncontrollable nature of my neverending energy my parents put me into dance and I thrived.My family raised me in a loving chrisitan household and taught me what it was like to be loved. They showed me that everyone deserves a second chance and that love is one thousand percent unconditional. At the age of 14 I had the amazing opportunity to go on a mission trip to India. I felt God calling me closer to the idea of giving to those who don’t have. I understood what it felt like to not want to be treated poorly without doing anything wrong . I understood what it meant to be in foster care and to be taken care of, and I wanted to give it back. What I want to do when I get older is move to India and teach kids who need some extra joy in life how to dance. I have been given many blessings in life by God and aside from dancing I am very crafty. I would be able to use those skills to create toys for little kids or even clothes. God has never not shown me the right paths in life and the right way to go about it. I hope to help people around the world who need me. I know God can use me in this way.
