My name is Wendell and I'm 16 years old




Black/African American



Wendell is described as friendly, energetic and quirky! This outdoorsy young man enjoys camping, swimming, biking, and exploring nature. One of his greatest experiences was camping in the Catskill Mountains. Being inquisitive, it’s only natural that his favorite subject is science. He likes to figure out how things work through experiments. Wendell is a great helper in the kitchen who enjoys cooking his own food and baking cakes. He is also artistically and musically inclined; he enjoys playing the drums and takes great pride in his intricate drawings.
