Dayana and Maira are sisters who, as described by their host family, are “happy, bubbly, playful and friendly”.
Dayana is 11 years old and in the fourth grade. She would proudly tell you that she is the 7th best student in her class. At first Dayana can be shy, but once you get to know her, her spunky and independent personality shines through. Dayana enjoys playing with dolls, doing arts and crafts, swimming, music and riding her bike. She likes dresses, and having her hair brushed/styled. One day she would like to be a police officer.
Maira is an independent, well-behaved, and creative 13-year-old in the 5th grade. Maira is very skilled with her hands and enjoys drawing and working on foam craft projects. She would love to learn to play the guitar. In her free time, Maira likes going out for walks, reading, doing puzzles, learning English, spending time at the shopping center, riding her bike in the neighborhood with her friends, and spending time with other people. One day she would like to be an engineer.
“Dayana and Maira have consistently demonstrated their ability to adapt to new situations, to learn new tasks and to flourish under challenging conditions”, their host family says. “They’re a sweet and content pair who are open to others and new experiences and frequently wear huge smiles across their faces.”
Dayana and Maira dream of having a family they can rely on, who will support them and provide opportunities for a better future and help them fulfill their dreams.
