When August isn’t outside she likes to play board games, like chess. She is also into drawing, painting and a variety of arts and crafts.

When she gets bored at home, she likes to “make stuff.” August does well in school and loves to read the Magic Treehouse books. She is also in a Christian youth group that meets weekly.

August’s mom would like to see her matched with a Big Sister or couple who could help her “come out of her shell.” August is a deep-thinker and has a passionate and committed nature about things that interest her, which right now is horseback riding. A Big with an interest in horses would be ideal!
