Shawn from Pennsylvania
?I'm ME? plain old ME. My name is Shawn. I like to play video games like Injustice 2, a superhero game. In fact, video games are something that I'm really interested in. I have plans to become a video game designer. I have many skills to help me get there including my love for learning and greater intelligence in many areas such as computers and math. I like everything about school and I'm eager to participate in extracurricular activities like the drama club! I have already begun to consider my college options and I think Edinboro University could potentially have a great program for Video Game Designing with a minor in business administration. Besides my academics, families probably want to know who I am. I am a person who is kind, considerate and respectful. I feel like I can relate to Newton's Laws of Motion where I am at peace until I become interrupted by another object or person. I do really well with things but sometimes I need time to adjust if something interrupts how things normally go. I like to go on nature walks outside where I can take in the fresh air. I like to make models out of wood too like cars and action figures. When I get to paint things- you can normally count on me picking my favorite color, purple!!! I'm not really athletic so don't count on me being super interested joining sports teams. I'm ok watching some games though. My favorite sports team is the Steelers but you can always find me watching WWE. Jeff Hardy is my favorite. I think family is anyone you have a close connection with and will always treat you with respect. I just want a family who I can count on. I need a family who will allow me to have a space to call my own. This is important so I can regroup when I need to. I do get overwhelmed being around a lot of little kids so please keep this in mind. When I get older, I want to look back and be able to say, I lived the BEST life I could. I have a special connection with a family friend whom I would like to remain in contact with. They have always been a great support to me even though I can't live with them. They'll be a great support to you too! Parental rights have not been terminated for Shawn; however when a permanent resource is identified, the county will enact final steps to terminate parental rights.
