Nigel from Pennsylvania
?I'm goofy - for real. I like laughing and joking. I like making people laugh; especially when I am with my friends. I love making jokes. I always have a smile on my face. I may even just laugh when I'm upset. It's one of my greatest coping skills. I have a dark Sense of humor and I laugh when an ordinary person wouldn't laugh!? If motivation and determination was a person, Nigel is your man! He is a well-spoken, down to earth, and goal oriented young man with goals to get through high school so he can begin exploring his secondary schooling options. Nigel is talented when it comes to writing poems, music and rap lyrics. ?Music is one of my biggest coping skills. When I'm sad, I listen to sad music and when I'm angry, angry music. I am so proud when I come up with a good line, metaphor or punch line. I haven't recorded in a studio but I want to put more time towards my music. People tell me I can go somewhere with my music. Sometimes I write rock or country. A lot of my music is about my feelings.? ?I love music, basketball, being outside, and spending time with friends. I like taking walks and being active. Sometimes I can be a home body. When it comes to video games, I'm not a big gamer but I will play a little. I LOVE super hero movies and I MUST SEE new super hero movies when they come out! I also like to read Marvel/DC comic books. If you're ready to sit on the couch and watch something interesting, I'm game for movies based on true stories; especially black history.? ?Family is important to me. I'm a loyal person. If I care about someone, I will show it. If I'm going into someone's home, I'm going to treat them like blood. Or if I enter their life, I'm going to treat them like blood. I'm big on loyalty and trust. I know I'm not perfect with that but I would never steal from someone. I take that seriously. I'm respectful, it's important. I respect everyone until they disrespect me. I'm the nicest person you could ever meet. I rarely have conflicts with people. I'm lighthearted. I see everyone the same, regardless of race, sexuality, gender, etc. I don't like people lying to me? don't give me false hope.? When Nigel was asked what he wants in a family, he states he would love to have a supportive mother in his life. He wants a mother who he can have a good relationship with. Nigel would prefer the family live in the city and have pets. He wants to be able to attend school, do extra-curricular activities, hang out with his friends, and just be a regular kiddo. Having a family that will support and be patient and understanding with Nigel with his goals is very important to him. Parental rights have been terminated for Nigel.
