Ariah came into care about 6 years ago and has not let it slow her down. She is academically driven and will not settle for anything less than an "A." Ariah is very fond of books, particularly the Harry Potter series, and likes to spend much of her time learning something new through books. She's a self-proclaimed "nerd." Ariah also enjoys spending time outdoors which includes going on walks, 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 is using this as her driving force to excel in school. She is hoping to join a couple clubs this year and join ROTC in her sophomore year!
