“One big collective heart of gold!”
Akeelah is a bright little bubble of joy. She loves people, and isn’t shy about letting them know! She has a big, compassionate heart and she tries always to “be a nice person.” When she grows up she wants to work in a hospital so that she’s able to help others. Akeelah does well in school, and especially likes math. She loves dogs and eating, and she’d like to live “with a brown family with a pool and a dog” along with her brother and sister.
Rashaan’s a caring, funny kid with a bright, disarming smile. He has the kind of personality that makes him put his best effort into whatever he does, and he works hard at school (especially science), and in sports. Rashaan has a tough time deciding on his favorite sport because he pretty much loves them all, but he was able to narrow it down to hockey, basketball, soccer and football! He has a sweet side, too, and cares deeply for the happiness and well-being of others, most especially of his two sisters.
Clarissa is an outgoing, friendly kid with a kind heart. As the oldest sibling, she looks after he brother and sister and cares about them very much. Clarissa does well in school, and last year won an award for being the nicest 5th grader! She likes to help others whenever she can, and she’s has shown a great amount of strength and resilience over the past few years, for which she should be very proud.
These three great kids would thrive together in a strong, two-parent household that will nurture their sweetness and talent, and give them the discipline they need to achieve their dreams.
