This is Samya.
She is an 11-year-old girl.
Samya is an imaginative young lady who is also engaging and clever. She is often seen with a book in her hand as reading is a favorite past time of hers. Samya also enjoys playing basketball, swimming and doing arts and crafts. She has a vision statement for her future which is, “I will show the world my creativity and I will be in a happy family.”
Samya will benefit from a family who provides a lot of structure and clear boundaries. She is still learning to accept guidance and directions from her caregivers, so she will need a family who can be patient with her and help her utilize her coping skills to be able to regulate her emotions when she is upset. Samya has a sibling she wishes to maintain contact with.
