My sister Taja is nine years old and had leukemia. She makes me feel like any younger sister would. She treats me the same as any sister. We like to play board games and jump rope. We both have a lot of fun. I help her by telling her what’s wrong and what’s right. I’m proud of my sister because she was able to make it through her cancer problem. “Taja, I’m amazed at how you were able to take all your shots when you had cancer and I hope we will continue to be close as we grow up together.”
I am someone who likes to explore the beach.
I can be very adventurous and try to discover things
I will be a veterinarian, a zookeeper or a top-secret spy
Cyré is my photographer and she is my older sister. Because she’s my older sister she sometimes bosses me around but we still play together and love each other. Cyré takes care of me and we like to ride our scooters around together and play at the playground and watch TV together. I am really proud of her because she gets good grades in school. I want Cyré to be healthy, happy and successful. “Cyré, I love you very much!”
