A curling iron for Ariah who likes to style her hair

Posted Dec 21, 2023
Ariah enjoys her curly hair. Her hair can also be difficult to manage. She is asking for this curling iron so she can style her hair quicker. It will also help to protect her natural curls.

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.
