Dayshona – Age 14

"I’m very athletic and confident. I'm also enthusiastic and dependable. I enjoy dancing and the performing arts. I have been dancing ever since I can remember, and I always participate in my school's talent shows."

"Right now my focus is graduating high school. I go to Constitution High School in Philadelphia. It is a lot of work, but I enjoy it. My education is the most important thing in my life right now, because when I get older I’m going to need the skills I had learned to be useful for my adult life. I will have a meaningful career. I love helping out at the Dream Academy."
