Aaliyah, Age 16 (Matched)

Aaliyah is a very independent, honest, and straightforward young lady. Her smile and laugh light up the room, and she bonds with new people quickly. Aaliyah is a social butterfly. She does well in school and enjoys most of her subjects. She picks up extra hours at her part-time job when she’s not hanging out with friends or studying. Aaliyah has big dreams and plans to go to school for business and manage a business when she is older. She enjoys painting, reading, watching Netflix, and listening to music. Aaliyah has a strong understanding of her past and has put forth great effort to reach her goals and get on the right path for her future.

Aaliyah is looking for a supportive family who will encourage her to continue to chase her dreams and accomplish her goals. She would like to continue working, pursue a business program in school, and work toward obtaining her driver’s license. Aaliyah is open to joining a family of any size and wouldn’t mind having pets or siblings. She would prefer a home where she will have her own room and not be in charge of babysitting younger siblings.
