Project Description

Jade – Age 17

Jade is a smart, funny, and opinionated 17-year-old. Her teacher reports that she is an engaged student who excels at English and Art in particular.

Jade enjoys spending time on her hair, nails, and makeup. She’s also got a sense of adventure and is amenable to trying new things – especially food. She’s a food enthusiast and is interested in learning how to cook. Jade has spoken of wanting to go into criminal law as a career, but at the moment, she is focused on getting into a more stable environment and on to transitional housing.

She absolutely wants more interested and caring adults in her life and warms up pretty quickly after her initial shyness. Jade has three younger siblings that she strives to maintain contact with.
