About Juanita

Juanita is 17 years old and lives in Colorado Springs, CO

Juanita is a very special young lady who is determined to overcome her past and make the most of her future! Her early life was extremely tumultuous and she ended up in foster care from the age of 8 until she was adopted at age 11. Sadly, her adoptive parents relinquished their parental rights in 2018 and so Juanita landed back in the system. Despite all this, she remains focused on being the best she can be. She is very bright and independent and active. She participates in soccer and cheer and describes herself as " kind, compassionate, shy but wild once she warms up and strong willed." Juanita does very well in school and is taking community college classes already. She aspires to be a police officer in order to "help people and make the world a better place."
