A nook for Ariah who is out of shelf space for books

Posted Sep 28, 2023
Ariah is a bookworm who spends most of her free time reading. This is one of the many reasons she excels in school. Ariaha recently moved into a new home and she has run out of space to store her books as she likes to keep all the books she reads. Due to her wonderful grades, pushing herself to always be learning, and being a wonderful kid, she is asking for a kindle for their 15th birthday. She is hoping to use this as her first big responsibility and take it to her local library to check out books.

Ariah is 15 years old and lives in NM

Ariah came into care several years ago and has not let it slow her down. She is academically driven and will not settle for anything less than her best. Ariah is very fond of books, particularly the Harry Potter series, and spends much of her time learning something new through books. She's a self-proclaimed "nerd." Ariah also enjoys spending time outdoors, including walking, camping, observing nature, and biking. Additionally, Ariah is excited about going to college but is often told that foster care kids "don't even graduate high school," and she is using this as her driving force to excel in school.
