YOUTH CORNER:

This month’s Child is Hannah.

I’m Hannah, I am 13 years old.  My favorite color is purple, & I love music.  I am a dancer, I have been dancing for 3 years, but I danced when I was younger as well.  I have a very committed time schedule to dance.  When I’m not dancing I am usually with my best friend, Bree, or with my family.

When I grow up I intend to go to college, maybe even a dance college.  I hope to further my career in dance, but other than dancing I want to study photography.
