Meet Eviana, an affectionate 9 year old girl whose interests range from doing makeup to helping her Uncle work on cars. Eviana does not have contact with her father, but she maintains an optimistic attitude despite the obstacles she has faced in her life. An upcoming 4th grader with an artistic outlook on life, Eviana enjoys hiking, kayaking, singing, swimming, and tennis.

Eviana is extremely compassionate, and just needs someone to spend quality time with and let her know she is important. She loves helping others, and would like to become a teacher when she grows up. Like many children her age, Eviana’s favorite subject in school is Physical Education, but she does not shy away from the arts or sciences.
