By: Carla Medina ( Darla )

Why?

Hestia's personality is nice, peaceful,very simple. She is the first born of my family like Hestia. That is why I chose her. Her personality is similar to mine. I keep peace between my friends. I am nice to most people. I don't have a short temper most of the time. I also have a likable personality. I like the nice simple things more than the most expensive things. Hestia is a very interesting goddess to do a project on.
