Just call Aliya a mall maven because the shopping centers are her happy haven. “I love to go to malls,” says Aliya, which she enjoys doing on the weekend and while spending time with friends. If she could visit anywhere, Aliya would travel to the Mall of America. In addition to enjoying malls, Aliya likes sports, too. She’s an athletic girl who participates in soccer, gymnastics and cross country, which she takes the most pride in. Aliya also enjoys reading and playing Apples to Apples. “She is into funny movies, especially those with Adam Sandler,” says Aliya’s worker. Aliya says her favorite animal is an elephant, her favorite color is blue and her favorite food is sushi. If she had three wishes, Aliya would want to be rich, able to fly and read people’s minds. When she gets older, Aliya wants to become a nurse. Now, Aliya just wants to find her forever family, one who likes doing fun activities together such as playing sports or traveling to Cedar Point.
“Aliya has a kind heart and is very creative,” says her worker. “Aliya describes herself as being very caring, fun to be around and one who loves to do fun things.” In school, Aliya benefits from assistance. She says reading is her favorite subject.
Aliya would do best with a mom and dad who are experienced and trauma informed. Aliya also would do best as the only child in the home. Her new forever family must make sure that Aliya receives the services she needs. Her worker adds that the family should be patient, flexible and active.
