Symar wanted to tell his own story– these are his words…
Hey! I’m Symar, and I just love talking. My favorite thing to talk about is celebrity gossip, but I also like to talk about socioeconomic issues, bullying, and sometimes politics. I would describe myself as confident, determined, intelligent, and focused.
I like video games, watching TV, and listening to music. If I could listen to music all day, I would. My worker is always surprised at how many lyrics I know when we’re listening to the radio. It usually takes me 2 or 3 plays to know all the lyrics because the music I listen to is very catchy.. I am a singer and I write my own songs. One of my other interests is fashion. I love putting outfits together for myself and for other people. I would describe my style as fun and edgy. Most of my fashion inspiration is from Cosmopolitan. One of my aspirations is to become a fashion stylist. I’m also interested in cosmetology.
I like going to school for both academic and social reasons. My favorite subject is History because we are learning about past presidents and the current presidential campaign and election. I also like learning about science, but I don’t like math. I’m still deciding if I’d like to go to college and the types of jobs I’d want. I like trying new things and challenging myself.
I would prefer a family with a single mom, but I’m open to other families too. I would like a family who spends a lot of time together, and enjoys conversations about funny and serious topics. I would like to do movie nights at home, and to go camping for the first time. I would also like to cook together as a family, but I’m not very good at chopping onions.
